My sister and her family came to visit last week and we had a lovely week all together. The weather was good and we went to the outdoor pool in Bourg St Maurice, and did the walk from Les Arcs 1600 to Les Arcs 1800 to the pool there. We picnicked at Le Crot and the kids went in the rock pools. We went to Italy for pizza and came across a chocolate festival in La Thuile. We spent the afternoon in Tignes and took her children up the gondola as they had never been in one before. There were lots of things to keep the children entertained up there , bouncy castles, trampolines, air bag to jump onto, park and a swimming pool with slides.
On Friday we met up with Hector, Ruth and Jamie, Angus and Marie Florence who have been to stop with us a few times in the Winter , at the Medieval City of Conflans near Albertville. We have never been before but kept meaning to pay a visit so decided it would be a good day to go. Its very picturesque and well worth a visit. It was great to see everyone and the girls had a good time with Jamie.
Th girls are back to school tomorrow after the long summer holidays, but we have had a fabulous summer and its passed too quickly. Anneha starts College (secondary School ) and Fi moves to Ste Foy school as Villaroger school has closed.
Jonny drove up through Villaroger yesterday , up the pistes, and he thinks they may well be putting more snow cannons in on the the blue run down to the Village which is great news as they kept it open so well last season so we could all ski down to the Bar , an extra 1 or 2 would mean we would have even more top up snow readily available.
Ive enclosed a few pics from the last week.
