A bright and cold start to 2015.  Just what winter should be like.  With our party of Hogmanay guests sated, cheery and on their way having spent two evenings of great merriment with us we locked up and made the five minute drive to the village, Sant Feliu de Pallerols.  Tired after two late nights (and early mornings) we wanted to clear our heads and do something to mark the 1st of January 2015….a wee climb up to the Santuario de Nostra Senyora de la Font de la Salut perched on the escarpment of Collsacabra at 1,030 (about 600m above Sant Feliu.

A huff and a puff up past some donkeys, a friendly robin and with short breaks to take in the view down over the Val de l’Hostales with the brightly snow capped Pyrenees beyond, it was beautifully clear.

We marked our arrival at the Santuario with the accompanying family snap.

So here is to a happy and prosperous 2015 to you all and here’s to more writing!
