After some serious hiking we decided on an easier day today on the walking front. We took our time and ended up with a fairly social day.
First up was a visit to Jean Sports to say hello and we were greeted by Jean and Nicole. Serge, Laurence and Sam were also there and it was nice to see everyone.
Next stop en-route to the Fornet was Chris and Suzanne’s. We stopped for a chat and a team photo before continuing on. Then we ran into Jean Louis who was out on his electric bike and then Millie’s school friend Zack.
We walked the Balcon and back home for lunch before heading to the pool at the Altitude. While the rest of Europe is sweltering Val d’Isere is a great place to be. The mountain breeze takes the edge off and a quick dip in the pool is fantastic! And then throwing the windows open before bed makes for a comfortable night. It’s absolutely brutal heat-wise down the valley and we’re lucky to be at altitude.
Next up was the Salon to see Karen and it was another great gig. She was accompanied by an excellent electric guitarist and with this wonderful weather the setting was extremely pleasant. (see photos)
After an easy day we’re thinking about the Col de la Galise tomorrow.
