It is by the church at Notre Dame de la Gorge, about 4 km south of Les Contamines, at the end of the road. Hanibal is said to have passed this way with his elephants as he crossed the Alps.
The second shot is of son & heir in action, showing off his good technique & very distinctive orange troursers!
I will post sock pictures tommorow. I needed some simple 'car knitting' for today so I have started some pretty mitts for me, using some Schoeller & Stahl Aran weight 'Big' Mexico that I bought at the Harrogate Knitting show in November. Less said about the rugby the better! Lets just say they came second! My attempt at some 'mothers mittens' (i.e. one with flaps) was not that successful before Christmas (the flaps flap off!) & so I am going to just knit some quick 'regular mitts'. I will photograph their progress later. The yarn is really colourful.
