An Alpine Break
written by Monty Halls (Senior)
We are enjoying a wonderful 2-week break in St Gervais les Bains (near Mt Blanc). Although the weather has been 'iffy', we have enjoyed walks in the snow at 2000 metres and walks in the woods in the warmer valleys. Some young lads passed by our chalet sporting a couple of nice trout caught in the small mountai stream running alongside the chalet. We have found wild strawberries and wild aubresia in the local woods and hope that someone will take us truffle hunting before the next week expires !! The view from the chalet balcony is to die for - no wonder the estate agents say that 75% of selling is position, position and po.sition. The food in local restaurants is brilliant and,when I have discovered how to do it, I will enter up one or two 'boring holiday snaps' and will drool over these until this time next year. Back in UK at the end of April.
