Sunday family walk along the Loire

Two weeks ago, we had beautiful spring weather, the first Sunday with very pleasant temperatures. We decided to take a walk along the Loire, around a small picturesque village, Veauchette. And I took the opportunity to test my latest acquisition, a #Minolta #CLE and its 40mm M-Rokkor lens.

    @lizkoppert Great! But here, winter is back. We had some light snow last weekend, and today, it's very freezy and cold... Just 3°C this morning.

    @gheinz :( I thought it was supposed to be Spring... further evidence, I suppose, of the seasons going wonky.

    @lizkoppert yes, it's supposed to... but everything is going wrong in these times.

    Tell me about it, @gheinz :)

    @lizkoppert The pandemic, the difficult job of a high school principal, the unhappiness of the students, the depressions of the teachers, the economic crisis, etc ...

    ...lockdowns, remote learning, and then there's the seasons mucked up from climate change. It's interesting that, at the end of 2008 (during the Great Recession), I was offered (and consequently accepted) a job in mental health. And in 2021 (whilst COVID19's still active), I still have that same job. It's moments like that (and the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes), that bring home how important my job is.
