There are a lot of toll highways
At breakfast you get a bowl and must decide if you want to use it for coffee or for cereal....I took 2 bowls anyways
The coffee and bread continue to be delicious

... number 2, by the Satnav this time...it should have been avoiding toll roads but it took me into a tunnel that runs under a section of the Alps...a 12.5 kilometre tunnel that cost me 27 Euros to get through.....

That evening we Skyped my Mum as it was her birthday and had a nice long catch up before heading out to a restaurant for dinner...Le Comptier. The food was delicious.

... s vertigo. On one of the rock faces, Michelle's disco legs was a source of amusement for both Virginie and me!!!
Well we made it down safely...eventually and back to the car. A short walk with Chicken for him to stretch his legs and then we made it to the village Bar for a beer! Another film was tonight's entertainment...The Bridges of Madison County.
The weather looked pretty good this morning but we knew there was a threat of some rain so Virginie made the decision that we would just do a mediocre length walk! We set off walking from the chalet, heading for the summit of Col de Maronne and then down via Signal de l'Homme. 5 or so hours later in mountain conditions, the rain certainly came down so we arrived back wet through!
After dinner, our evening entertainment was watching the Life of David Gale. Great film!
