... reasonable gradient as it left St Michel behind.

The descents were frightening and bloody cold, especially from the top of Col de Beau Plan with visibility at about five metres above 1000m. It was a bit of a shock when a deer darted out in front of me. I had my full winter gear on and it was barely enough.

We are off for dinner soon in St Michel then tomorrow two TDF climbs are on the agenda.
au revoir

We visited the ski village of Valloire today just above (on the road) but below the top of the Telegraphe in elevation. I could see part of the Galibier from there. Its an intimidating looking climb.

Until tomorrow

Anyway they were absolutely marvellous to see and I wish I had my camera. We went back to the same restaurant as Friday. They are fantastic. Brent and Nicholas shared a fondue experience. It smelled awful to me. Now we sit here with the fire going in July. Might as well be at home. We came here for an extended ...

Popping into Italy for Sunday Mass (as you do)

... tolls. In nan hour and a half drive we were asked for 1.20€, 6.70€ And another one ( or 2?) that is not coming to me. I forgot to write yesterday that by going through a tunnel that was about 13 km they hit us up for 42.70€ And that on top of the numerous other tolls during the day. Had lunch at home. Spent the afternoon tracking around the town again. The 3 youngest had another turn at archery. This time was a bit more on their own and they enjoyed that ...
