A Corsican Vacation

Pine Mountain

Welcome to Pine Mountain. Christmas 2008 is now history. My sister came to visit with her daughter and husband.We had a big Christmas feast and plenty of presents under the tree. After dinner, we took the horses out and went for a ride in the new fallen snow.

We came back from our ride and turned on the Christmas lights. All the lights plus a lit snowman and Santa and his sleigh make the ranch shine at night.

This week our feature story is about Corsica France. Corsica is an island in the western mediterranean that is one of the 26 provences of France.

Nutrition and Health

These days everyone is concerned about nutrition and health. Most of our food is over processed and has very little nutrient value. Our food looks great but not much more. If we want to stay healthy in today’s world we are forced to take supplements. The question is: What supplements will provide what you need for the least amount of time and money? I believe one of the best supplements out there is called acaiplus. It is a blend of vitamins and minerals plus acai to promote health and long life. They also have vitamins to help improve your long term and short term memory. They also have an energy drink that gives you steady long term energy. To learn more about these products go to ==> Acaiplus . Check out Acaiplus, Feed My Brain, and White Lightning. Here on Pine Mountain we drink Acaiplus every day.

And now our feature story

An Adventure in Corsica

We left Estonia behind us and flew to Paris, France. We had a few hours in Paris then we flew to Campo del Oro airport in Ajaccio, Corsica. Ajaccio is on the western shore of the island of Corsica about halfway down the island.


One of the 26 regions of France, Corsica is a large Mountainous island in the western Mediteranean. Even though it is closer to Italy, 90 kilometers (56 miles) than France 170 kilometers (110 miles) it has been a French possession since 1764 when Genoa sold it to France.
The island of Corsica is 183 kilometers (114 miles) long and 83 kilometers (52 miles) wide. The main mountain range runs north and south.


There are three main climates on the island. Coastal Mediterranean from sea level to 610 meters (2000 feet). Temperate mountain from 610 meters (2000 feet) to 910 meters (3000 feet). Alpine 910 meters (3000 feet) to 2706 meters (8880 feet). Most people live below 610 meters (2000 feet). Sheperds and hikers travel 610 meters (2000 feet to 910 meters (3000 feet) and only a few alpine climbers travel in the 910 meter (3000 feet) to 2706 meter (8880 feet) zone.

Our Adventure

Arriving in Ajaccio we rented a car and headed south. We stopped for the night in the little town of Sartene.


The next morning we resumed our journey south on N 196. This road is twisting and winding and seems to go on forever. Finally late in the afternoon on the second day we reached the southernmost city on the island. This is Bonafacio, the city on the cliff.


We spent the night in Bonafacio and the next morning headed north. Our next stop was Porto Vecchio.


We had lunch here then continued up the east coast on N198. It was late afternoon when we reached the town of Aleria after driving for hours and admiring the coastal view. We spent our third night there. We leisurely drove up the coast on N198 and N193 and stopped for our 4th night at Bastia.


Our fifth day we headed back across the island on N193. Climbing over the mountains we arrived back in Ajaccio on the evening of the fifth day. We spent the night in Ajaccio then flew back to Paris on the sixth day. We were sad to leave the island of Corsica. We could have spent several months there and still not seen everything. We will have to come back another time and take a more leisurely visit.

Pine Mountain Evening

It is evening once more and I am relaxing here on Pine Mountain in my easy chair in front of the fireplace. The gas fueled fire in the fireplace takes the chill off the mountain evening. Squeekers my African Grey parrot is sitting on his perch munching peanuts. I am relaxing with my coffee from Tonight I am trying Santa's Cookie Coffee. This coffee has a distinct taste of vanilla and almond butter mixed with American roast coffee. It is another desert coffee. It is just the right drink for Christmas and it goes well with a plate of chocolate chip cookies. Squeekers and I have been watching another Sci fi series called Highlander. Both my coffee and my TV show are over now. It has been a long day. I put Squeekers in his cage, turn off the gas fireplace, and head upstairs to bed. Good night all. See you next week.
