Summer

The Stelvio Pass, from P. Tabaretta, 2538 metres It’s on dull, overcast, somewhat drizzly days like this that it’s nice to revisit images from earlier in the year, and re-live those lovely high Alpine days when Sue and I were enjoying unusual warmth up at 2500 metres whilst the rest of Europe was sweating it out below.

Here, on a day walk from the campsite in Trafoi, Sue is looking towards Rifugio Borletti (dead centre), where we had earlier enjoyed refreshments, beyond which the unmistakable hairpins of the Stelvio Pass wind inexorably up to its 2800 metre summit.

My posting made at the time is here.

I’ve still not really touched the pictures from that trip.  I suppose that’s what I should be doing on days like this.  That and finishing my TGO Challenge slideshow.  Oh dear, there’s some new gear to write about as well.  And yesterday’s walk.  The distraction of unboxing and sorting a lorry load of possessions at Mike’s house doesn’t help, of course.  There are rooms over there to decorate as well, once the contents of 20 or so huge boxes have been stashed in his loft in more manageable bags. Then, what to do with those contents…

So, now you know why postings are currently a little sparse.  “House Admin.”

How did I ever find time to go to work?

Please don't mention that 4-letter word, it might scare the horses!

Distant memories, John, but I was reminiscing about w**k with some old friends yesterday - it was actually quite fun at times...!
