Finally some sunshine, well at least a peek through the clouds every now and then. Ready to ride at 5.30am and the night clerk forgot to leave the key out for the shed. Another late start then I'm off to climb Col du Mollard.

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

The Alps beat me ...

At lunch Nicholas and Claire went up to buy some fresh carrots for lunch and came back a beautiful bunch with stems on. I was impressed that they did that without any language!! The carrots were good too! I wondered how much the guinea pigs would have liked those stems but unfortunately had to throw them out. :-( We headed off to find the ...

... laughing. The guy said quietly that he now understood that there was a difference between Canadians and Americans that was not unlike that of North Belgians and Netherlanders, who also share the same language. It was pretty funny.

Outside it had been raining since we got to the restaurant, but we managed to catch a break and got back to the hotel between raindrops. The weather notwithstanding, we had a pretty good time today and the photo ops were amazing.
