These are areas that naturally lack trees due to a very shallow soil depth.

Did not see as many wildflowers and butterflies ad I though I would, but it was still a good day. The lunch was amazing. The food was outstanding and the company was very hospitable, felt very comfortable and enjoyed everyone.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
