13/05/2020: Confinement Ends / Weather Mixed...

Confinement in this area of France came to an end on Monday, after about 8 weeks, so life is slowly returning to something resembling normality, however, various restrictions remain in place.

For those of us who like to go up into the mountains during the summer months, the fact that we are now no longer limited to 100m above where we live, is a huge bonus. The only limiting factor at the moment is the weather, which has been showery all week and is forecast to remain the same, which is in stark contrast to the weeks of beautiful weather during confinement!

Photos below from this week...
