High Hopes in the French Alps

Sunday People

The last few days we’ve been taking advantage of the late flyable Autumn weather, out almost every day, but purely for ourselves! We’ve work to do on the house as we’re making changes and hoping to take delivery of a brand spanking new wood burner tomorrow, it’s a bit of a powerful beast and should heat up the whole house, no problem. There’s lots of preparation going on to accommodate the newly acquired heating appliance before the onslaught of winter, proper. We’ve had frosted windscreens, snow down to around 1300 meters, which receded again, fresh dustings of snow whenever the clouds have been around so the hints of winter are here, just not settled yet. The winter clothing is out now, and balaclavas are making a re-appearance on the para-fashion-scene.The temperature takes a distinctive drop in the evenings now, so it won’t be long before the landscape starts to take on a very different character.

It looks set to change for the next few days, so it’ll give us a chance to catch up on the indoor work that needs doing! Nice flying today, beautiful colours and equally as beautiful colourful and friendly people, it was a very jovial gathering today.
