Another snowy picture - but this time we were glad to see some of the white stuff! We have just returned from the first of what we hope will be many skiing trips to the Pyrenees. Daniel and Lucy were here with us for the week, so we spent a long weekend in Soldeu, Andorra. The drive up there on Saturday morning took just 90 minutes - so it would work well as a day trip as well. We were on the slopes by 9am and soon started to find our way around the large ski area of Grandvalira, which goes right over to Pas de la Casa. The slopes were a bit icy on the first day, but welcome snow showers overnight and on the second day gave way to clear blue skies on the final day, and some fresh snow on the ground as well - perfect!
Daniel and Lucy were lucky enough to enjoy some winter sunshine while they were at La Maire with us as well, so were happy to give us a hand in the garden, clearing leaves and continuing with work on the pool.
We had a good drive back here from the UK on 29th December. We arrived late evening to a very cold house, but soon got the boiler fired up and everything warmed up. We spent a lively and fun New Years Eve with friends at Sara and Jeff's lovely house.
