High Hopes in the French Alps

Not a Cloud in the Sky

If you are a member of the ‘Cloud Appreciation Society’ and are against the ‘banality of blue sky thinking’, you might as well have not bothered getting up this morning!

Because that’s all it was all day… clear blue skies, with just a hint of the odd tiny wisp of cloud that appeared and disappeared without a trace, blink and you’d have missed it. Nope, not barely a cloud to be seen, not including the contrails though, there were a few of those.

Transfers again, so no flying. Of what I gathered, there were a few gliders around but stability beat them all it seems,  no-one seemed to be going anywhere. It was all very quiet… just one or two gliders in Chamonix just scraping above the Pump, but not much more than that.

Still we had  time to readjust our harnesses, and transfer the reserves and all, still a bit more setting up to do but nearly there.
