Ascent: 500 metres
Time taken: 5.0 hrs
Weather: sunny and very hot
The hotel is great, the Collett's staff are most helpful, and the food is excellent.
Today I spent a pleasurable five hours with Remy (Collett's) and thirteen other guests, strolling on easy paths in the Sabocos valley above the village.
To all intents and purposes a well earned rest day with some of the Macclesfield Squash Club group that we encountered in Haus Valentin in Badia last July. It's a small world!
The walk featured:
- a large lizard nearly 2 ft long
- evidence of a wild foraging party enjoyed by some boars
- lots of flowers, including
Queen of the Alps
A selection of spotted Orchids
and many more.
Back at the hotel by 2 pm for large beers and a lazy afternoon.
Sue arrived via Jet2's service from Manchester to Toulouse, and a five hour drive, at soon after 6 pm, so now we can enjoy a little holiday together.
Pictures comprise the view from the hotel (top), walkers in the Sabocos valley, and a view up the Sabocos valley.
(Notes from Mr Kindle: Wolf Hall is on hold at 46%, and Humphrey's recommended tale from the Pyrenees - The Invisible Guardian by Dolores Redondo has been commenced)
