Although only part of my path was along the Sèvre Niortaise, the wet landscape was obvious everywhere.  There were so many canals, houses appeared to be on islands…

I was tempted to go ‘off-route’ by the entrance to this bike trail, but, ever afraid of getting lost, I peddled on towards Sainte-Sabine…

  4. The blog posts are teaching me about the landscape of France. I appreciate the slow and easy perspectives you offer and of course, love your drawings. They capture what you see but also add life and another deeper dimension to the landscape.

    • Hi Carol. Thanks. I think if I ever actually drove through this part of France, it would seem very familiar! Jane
