It seems very strange to think that we are leaving tomorrow despite wishing this day to come sooner not that long ago. The whole area is beginning to look very different, much how it was when we arrived but as we were so unfamiliar with it then it does seem as though we are seeing under the snow for the first time. We have already started the strange process of doing things for the last time, which after 5 months, is quite a wrench, particularly after 6 days a week. We had a lovely lazy afternoon yesterday, just lounging on the grass outside the chalet before staggering down to the hotel for a farewell BBQ.
We have our final BBQ party tonight at Capt. Sandwich which is conveniently close to our flat. Yes, we have managed to retain our abode until tomorrow which is great. Just some illustrations of the curently state of the chalet to hopefully prove that I’m not being too precious.
We’ve had a lovely last day starting with breakfast of smoked salmon and Camembert omelette on the patio (again) after a little bit of cleaning and packing!! Then we ventured up the hill again but sans skis. Views from the yoghurt pots.
It was necessary to make full use of the ski pass so we took 2 lifts and then walked to our lovely restaurant on Lac Besson without knowing if it would actually be open, fortunately it was but it was a beautiful walk anyway even if a little soft under foot.
The paths had been pisted but many of them run over rivers and streams which are beginning to reassert themselves so we had to be a bit careful.
