Rare glimpse of snow at the junction
of the Ruisseau du Lirou and the River Orb

Both the girls liked cooling off in the stream

Ruisseau du Lirou

Starts up in the hills between Puisserguier and St Chinian and was the cause of the major flooding in 1995, when a "tidal wave" swept through the village of Puisserguier, killing several people, people were trapped in the buildings on the first floor and watched helplessly as cars were swept away complete with their occupants.

Happily that was an unique occurence (certainly in the twenty years I've been here) and the stream where you see the girls playing and cooling off is much more normal.
