Pre Blog

Activities to be advised, but at around 18:00 we shall depart Luchon back for Harrogate

Live Blog

After a pack and tidy up of the rooms and all the suitcases packed (that took time believe me !) (toothbrush found !!!) we walked down the hill to town. Memories of Germany but this time the hill was 3/4 hour walk.

We then all jumped into the gondola that took us from 630 to 1800 metres up a spectacular 45 degree mountain.

At the top we walked around the ski station and plateau and saw the magnificent views down into the valley including the valley from yesterday with the waterfall. The temperature today is in the high 20's with clear blue sky's !!!

After the hot walk up the hill we were treated to the most fantastic buffet lunch, of both hot, cold, cheese and desert. A wonderful spread and all the guys just ate and ate and ate themselves silly !!!

Now can we walk back to the gondola and will it take our increased weight.

Well its nearly all over - with a free afternoon back In the village centre it's a quick dash back with the coach to the gite to load the bags.

Special mention to steve H. Who left his jacket and phone in a cafe so we left him down in town - had too many beers Steve ? Memory going ?

So we are now on the road.... Will let you know how we are getting on.

P.s. We did pick Steve up on the way past !

It's nearly midnight and we have been travelling for 6 hours, one quiz won by mr chairmans team closely followed by Ali king and Rory and two dvd's and it's time to sleep (if we can)
