Jonny has completed the Tour de Mont Blanc with |Mike and Alex and had great weather all week except for the last day which had a little rain. The walk which circles Mont Blanc, passing through France, Italy and Switzerland is around 170 km’s and should take between 7 – 10 days. The boys did it in 7 which was good going as Alex was only 14. Sleeping in Mountain refuges, and carrying all their kit themselves in rucksacks, it is an experience of a lifetime. Here are a couple of photos from the trip.
My sister Nat visited us for a week and we had a wonderful time. The weather once again was superb and we fitted lots in. There is so much to do here in the Summer and we could have done with another week to show them eveything.The Chalmers Family were next door in the Chalet and the children got on so well, they were playing out until bedtime most nights. Le Loissel didn’t know what had hit it with 8 children having fun. Ive added a couple of pics of the kids doing the activities.
Mountain Bikers can be seen everywhere at the minute. They are loving the single track back to the Village and the new thing in 1800 is the Inflatable bag where the MB’s can do tricks and land safely on a big bouncy dustbin bag, or the likes of. Its fantastic!!!! Here’s Phil, Mick and the boys in Le Loissel and then one taken in Arc 1800.
Will write again soon with pics from the Fete in Villaroger and the Mounain Bike Race in Ste Foy.
