Les Gets

So I spent this weekend in Les Gets with Simon's parents, workin on my English slang, my English humor and my English Appetite. We arrived Saturday afternoon and walked around a little bit, had dinner with Simon's parents and then headed down to the local pretend Irish pub run by an Englishman full of French people, weird. got up late the next day and went for a hike. Had another amazing dinner before heading home again. I took over 250 photos this weekend, so if you want to see more, just ask. but these are the best.

This is the chalet from the road as you arriveThis is the 3 story chalet, the appartments are cozy and open right to the slopes, the lines above are for a gondola and the chair behind is a six pack.
This is a lake close to the chalet, the buildings on the other side are apparently a school, not a bad place.This is the view from the "porch" the gondola tower and runsThis is the six pack as the sun goes down and the clouds creep up to town for the night, the clouds move in and out of the valley all day, it's like a tide and depending on the temps above and below, the clouds move up and down, into or out of the valley.This is the view at nightThis is Monte Clary, the hill on the other side of the valley, more on Monte Clary laterThis is just home everything looks in the morning with the fog and everythingAnd this is the gondola tower, with all the morning fog and a little bit of backlighting
Same thing but a exposed a little better
Went to put my camera way but i ran into myself
despite the warm looking photos, it was not warm, actually quite chilly with the wind
Every meal was like this, except when it was really cold
Soaking in the evening rays, trying to get warm
This is just as we left, the fog creeping up the valley, the sun setting and the stars starting to show, hopefully those chairs will move soon

All in all a very stellar weekend, got to spend some time relaxing taking lots of photos, walking around in the frosty grass, and drinking tea and saying cheeky.

Thanks to Dorothy, John and Bobo
