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. I had 'black pig' which just melted in the mouth whilst the others all had steak. All the desserts were just as fantastic as was the service we received.
... 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!
