... from the usual maintenance, painting and repairs we always have to do, our projects are done here and with itchy feet, perhaps it is time to find a new one. Will the boat sell next year? Who knows. Will I ever write that book? Not sure, but do know that I need to do something new or get involved in with a new interest to keep me going or I will end up like the other little old ladies up here in their cleaning tabards, lisle stockings and sensible ...
... to get to the top. It was his first real mountain climb and he wasn’t disappointed, the scenery was totally awesome with switchbacks through the woods at the bottom of the climb before getting ever steeper and slower before finally reaching the summit at 1490 metres, wow what an achievement! His best ride to date!
All in all we have had a brilliant few days, and now we are off to do some work!!
Miles so far……878….

As we left Lourdes behind, a glance over our left shoulders towards the Pyrenees revealed the places where we had such a good time, covered with snow. Proper thick snow, that although undoubtable beautiful, would have wrecked the riding of the last few days.
Its been truly magical, we have been so lucky.
Next you will hear from us we will probably be in Avoriaz. Cheers just now.
Well, we are still recovering from my birthday, only two hours sleep. Worth it though, best birthday ever. So, we travelled today from Madrid to France, sleeping half the way. The scenery changed so much along the way, northern Spain turned into a Little Switzerland. So pretty, and then you get to France, equally as beautiful.
We arrived in Lourdes around 4 o'clock. Lourdes, ...
... a just reward.
Pete picked us up at the top and the drive back down Tourmalet bought home the size of the climb just completed. To watch it on the Tour the next day was special.
Dinner, a wander to the big church and grotto and bed were the order of the night
