Both Breezy and I took a day off pointing and went for a walk with Breezy’s Father from Col de la Pause up to Etang Arreau and the refuge. On the way there we swung by Clive’s to feed the cat.
The cloud level meant that we did not benefit with great views but we had a great walk and a picnic on the bench at the refuge which was closed.
We left Iian’s car at Couflens so that I could shoot off into St Girons afterwards and stock up with sand while Iian and Breezy headed back up to Salau and the barn. Hans had cracked on with the pointing in our absence and got half way across the gable end with the big window. When I got back both Breezy and Hans were brushing off the last bits.
In the evening we headed off to the Mont Valier Restaurant and Iian treated us to a meal out.
