Friday, 16th March 2018 - Saint Jean de Sixt

The sun came through the clouds for me. Most of the party went snow hunting. They seem extremely happy with their adventures off-piste, on-piste and every which way. Fergus is giving Tom a few pointers to hone his skills. Tim if fallen finds the help of a nearby woman useful. These are all stories and conjecture as I am not present to witness them. There was a 'trending article' today of a horrific chair lift malfunctioning and flinging people off. This reassures me that my decision to not ski is wise.

I took a walk down into Sixt. I had an encounter with a french man who told me he could not see, he seemed to be doing a very good of walking his dog in the circumstances. I spent a couple of hours sitting on a wall painting today's picture. I think the rain has added texture. A very jolly Frank served me a chocolate chaud where I did a quick sketch of the scene in front of me.


La Cascade

We had a game of Carcassonne before dinner with newbies Fergus and Lizzie. Guess who won? Oh yes.

I have to go Steve has cooked steak and potato wedges....
