Room warm with extra heater. Slept well. Woke in night and thought about putting my hat on. Croissant, coffee, toast.
To St. Martin Vesubie in the rain. Bimbled about and then coffee in the cafe. To St. Dalmas. We walked in the Black Forest without snow shoes for a couple of hours. Mostly it rained. Lunch in a nice shed with seats. Potato salad with nuts, baba ganoush, cheese, bread. Hot grape juice.
St. Dalmas is home to a very old Templar church.
Back to mulled wine and pretzels.
Dinner: pea pate, yum and bread, chestnut soup, pumpkin pie with salad and roast potatoes, ginger cake trifle with meringue. Yum yum.
The power cut. I went outside, the whole valley in darkness, my eyes adjusted quickly, owl hooting, just fab.
