Back from a family ski holiday in Meribel-Mottaret
A January picnic near Meribel Altiport
Mont Vallon from the apartment
As you can see, we had excellent snow and several days of sunshine. I never get tired of the breathtaking, spirit-raising mountain views even though we've been going to the same place for years. As you can see the wolf sculpture in Courchevel above reflects the patterns of light and shade in the peaks. (All photo credits Rory Vereker)
We discovered our next-door French neighbour in the chalet block is an Alpine Horn teacher - has to win a prize for an original profession. As you may recall, Alpine horns are wooden and about 12ft long and are played by several chaps standing in a row. If you search for Alpine horn you'll see what they look like. Blogger is being moody about pictures today otherwise I'd include one.
