At last the weather has broken. As usual in the Cévennes we pass from one extreme to the other: we have just had 12 hours of storms and torrential rain. It has eased off but I can hear the river down below – the first time for months.
The footbath kept beside the jacuzzi records that we have had at least 14 cm of rain since early morning. And below, the bassin looks as if it is on the point of overflowing (despite its overflow mechanism). What a contrast to the water yesterday – the photo shows it to be pristine clean and inviting.
