Cold For Which Time Of The Year?

A lovely sunny day, and quite warm in the sun once the day had woken up a bit. But the temperature was only 7 degrees as I set out to walk from Lavelanet to home. That's a bit chilly for legs wearing shorts, but not too surprising for the middle of October.

I have spent many hours lately working on the book of the walk, which is very near to proof-reading stage. So it has not escaped my attention that there were many mornings of similarly low temperatures during VBW, and amazingly, on June 21, the day on which the sun is at its nearest to northern hemisphere inhabitants, the temperature as I started the day's walk was only 5 degrees.
