10th Sep 2007

 

We’ve had a bit of mixed weather the last week, with fresh snow on the mountain tops. We took this picture from our kitchen window the other morning!

It was the bike race at Le Monal Hotel, Ste Foy last week and thankfully we had a beautiful day for it. The race is for mountain bikers and is a circuit round the village of Ste Foy with different obstacles on the route. There are 2 people to a team and they have to do as many circuits as possible in an hour. The race actually goes through the bar, as you can see from the photos below.
We are proud to say that 2 English guys came 2nd in the race, having being up against mountain guides and some proffessional riders!!!!

 

We have been spending quite a bit of time down at Plan D’eau just recently. The other day the girls swam to the island and back. I thought Fi would sit it out but she insisted on going and loves this photo of herself at the otherside.
 
I have just come back from a long weeked in Nice with some friends. It was tracy’s 40th so we left on the Friday morning and came back Sunday evening. It was a perfect place to go with lots of bars,lovely restaurants, great shopping and beautiful beach and sea.I’ve just about recovered from it now. These are a couple of photos from the trip

 

The girls are back at school now and I am able to try and do a bit of sorting out etc. We cut our wood the other day and stacked it up ready for the winter.We are getting a new hot-tub for this next season so are getting that fit this next week.

Will write again soon.
