What A Contrast!!!

I walked around for a few holes with Millie this afternoon and the contrasting weather conditions were incredible! We started out in beautiful sunshine and blue skies and it was quite stunning. But on the 7th just after Millie’s tee shot the skies burst open and we were driven off the course. It started pouring with a little hail mixed in and the ferocious wind was driving the rain through our clothing soaking us instantly. It was really good fun and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves but we dove into a hot shower the moment we returned home. (See photos)

President Macron is addressing the French Nation tonight and the rumour is he’ll be announcing a 4-week lockdown. It’s probably better that he does it now and not later. A lockdown now would give us a chance of opening at the end of November or early December. A later lockdown would spell serious trouble!

I don’t know about you but I’d be happy if they opened just a few lifts to get us up the mountain. Any skiing would be great appreciated and those of you who don’t like to walk would probably welcome it now? Fresh air, mountain views and exercise would be wonderful. Fingers crossed!!!

Stay tuned for more news soon.
