Today is a day of sorting and cleaning in preparation for an early departure for Chamonix in the morning.
Yesterday we went exploring out of the valley and discovered a climbing area at Massat. On route back we had time to call in with Hans and his wife Marion above Oust. Hans is going to help us in the autumn and was an artist before he started building. Marion is a writer and their house is fantastic; full of character and charm. After a quick tour; a coffee and a bite to eat we trundled back to the grange to meet Matt, another builder who can spare us some time.
Then today packing tools and cleaning. At lunch time we met Pierre at the grange to plant the trees. It is so nice to plant something before we lock up and leave for the summer.
