And the weather....?

We did the 400 hours from Florence back to Grenoble in a day, a day of extreme heat combined with the fact that Keith was not feeling too well. He seemed to have picked up a bug but fortunately, it only lasted 24 hours. However, yesterday and today we have made the decision not to go too far afield as we are staying here till tomorrow morning.

The problem now is... the weather!!! We have travelled a total of 2000 miles to get away from the rain and now, after the heat of Florence, it's wet and somewhat windy!

We did have a run round the mountains yesterday and took advantage of the glimmers of sun which burst through from time to time and the sight of the Alps swathed in cloud was atmospheric to say the least. These photos should give you some idea.
