#retreatlog2017 #madewithloops.co.ukLast night we had thunderstorms and this morning the weather changed quickly from blue skies to grey, low cloud cover and rain. This did however not deter us from venturing out, and donning all weather gear and best foot forward we set off for a morning hike around Lac Plagnes.

Even though we got drenched, we enjoyed the complete quiet of the lake, listening to the birds and a new stunning, sometimes mysterious, vista at every turn.

Refreshed and cob webs blown away we are now back at the Chalet with the fire lit and our knitting in hand. What more could we wish for and only one more sleep and all our guests will be here. Perfect!

Stay dry! X.

Day two of the road trip was greeted with sleepy eyes in need of coffee and pain au chocolate. We found a lovely little cafe catering to our caffeine/sugar needs and soon we were on the road again.

The sock grew steadily throughout the day, and, after a few detours and a variety of weather challenges, we arrived at Chalet Mont de Grange. Made up beds and cooled wine was waiting for us, and after a yummy dinner we fell into bed sleeping like logs.

Totally refreshed we woke up to this…

…how could you not want to be coming here for some knitting, good food and laughter!

Just a few things to organise for the arrival of our fabulous guests on Sunday, but today I can be found doing mostly just this…

7.30am and we are off on our long drive from Wales to the French Alps.

By the time we reach France the sock has got a heel and we are rockin’ to Jim Morrison and Robert Plant in the car.

And at long last…

…we arrive in Arras for our overnight stay at a typical French Auberge.

Now to find the nearest bar for an aperitif and a bit more knitting!
