Woke up early. Brrr 5 Degrees and camping!!. Rush t6o thye warm shower. Sun cam,e out during breakfast which was nice. Packed up and got on our way. Big trip today to Grenoble. Want to be there by 7.30 pm kick off of French semi final. Christian has the beers organized. Cut across the country LochesChateauroux LeChatre, and then Montlucon. Lachy did a project of The White Mouse , Nancy Wake- an NZ/Aussie French Resistance fighter who was based here. Del and Ross have just read her book. So we went through the Old Ville and then up into the hills where they were hiding and spotted a monument to the French Resistance fighters of the area…..onto Roanne. Got on the motorways and everything quickened up. Saw signs for Grenoble so getting close. Went through a mountasin pass so terrain is changing. Went into a huge tunnel in Lyon. Thought we would never come out. Racing to Grenoble 120km and being passed by everyone. Then the mountains came into view. Could see Grenoble at the bottom with huge mountains rising around and could pick out St Egreve. Ssoon found our way to La Monta passed our old apartment and then onto Christian n Colletes who were waiting to greet us with Yves and Babette. A nice reunion. Wonderful to see them again after nearly twenty years. Christian says the house is yours they will stay with Yves babette. Very kind. At 8.30pm we went with them to Yves for dinner….
