Back Yard Beauty

Saturday morning was a lazy day. I woke early to read and Martha some time later. After a relaxed breakfast, we began the litany: What do you want to do today? I don't know, what do you want to do today? Yes, we go through that back-n-forth still after 36 years! We decided we needed to go to the market (open-air) but that would take all of an hour. What next?
Then Martha suggested we go a back route to a little village we visited years ago: Goudarges. It has a stream that runs through the center of it stocked with trout. It's all of 3 blocks long nestled into the hills of the lower Cevenne.
It was the perfect sort of day: sunny without being too hot, minimal crowds and wonderful food! Our lunch took two hours. Nobody was in a hurry. And it was all in our own back yard.
It makes me wonder about how many other back yard beauties I miss at home in Santa Barbara: the hills, the trails, La Cumbra Peak, the butterfly preserve, etc?
