Return to the country

It is a lot warmer on the West coast than in the centre of the island, maybe 5 degrees difference, and strangely less wind.  Feeling extremely hot, I jumped at the opportunity to go for a drive and a walk in the forest close to Grande Bassin.

This time the deer were not hiding.

This herd quickly got up to hide in the trees and bushes

There are thousands of deer in the forests, wild boars and hare as well. You need to keep your eyes open at all times, you never know what you might see.

I was lucky to have chosen the right clothes today as I had checked the excellent weather forecast…for once!
