Another glorious day yesterday. Too good to stay in, even too good for the spa so off we set to walk part of the way from Barboleuse ( elevation 1211) to Solalex (elevation 1462) a distance of approx 4K. This road is closed to traffic in the winter making Solalex only accessable to skiíers and walkers.
As I am completely out of shape I had no expectation of reaching Solalex but we told ouselves that we would just go to the next corner, then the next etc. And before we knew it we were there ordering a life saving bowl of soup together with a small glass of local wine in the rustic refuge.
Monica then did her little party trick of feinting. She seems to have a problem with melted cheese as in whenever she eats it she passes out! Not funny when you are up a mountain with no way down but the Air Ambulance, a skidoo leaving in another 4 hours or the way we came up - foot! The patron bought a cushion and a blanket, she slept for a while and then announced she would walk down! And how could I argue with a tough old bird like that? Respect! Off she marched with me trailing behind and before long we were enjoying hamburger and chips back at my hotel. I tell you they don't make 'em like that anymore!
Today we were more gentle with ourselves!
