Wonderful walking above the gorge!

25 November 2011

I left yesterday to an emotional farewell with Millie, Katie, and Gill at 3AM as the girls sensed when I was leaving. I’m missing them already but Millie and I have been keeping in touch with emails as well as the phone. After a sad start the journey down was smooth and I arrived to stunning scenery and a lovely supper with Chris and Suzanne.

Today Chris helped me unload the car before Suzanne, Chris, John Ellis and I walked up above the gorge towards the refuge. It was beautifully sunny and warm and it felt great to get some fresh air and exercise, especially after being in the car all day yesterday. We then stopped by the Ellis’ and had a cup of tea on the terrace with Margaret, and it was so mild in the sun I was comfortable in shorts and a vest. Chris, Suzanne and I then continued on above the village on the Balcon, which was lovely as well. (Jean has kindly posted today‘s photos. Merci Jean)

Anyway, stay tuned for skiing news tomorrow as we’ll head up to the Fornet and see what awaits us. (Come on you Hammers!)
