Twenty Six Thousand Words

Okay, after several days effort I finally got the holiday photographs onto the web site this morning. Very relieved. Of course, it also allows me to put a couple of pictures onto the blog. So, here's our holiday in pictures...
We stayed for a week in a chalet...


...in the Val d'Abondance.


This is in the Haute Savoie region of France, in an area of lakes...


[Lac de Montriond] 


[Lac LĂ©man] 

...of ski lifts...

[Le Morclan]

...and, of course, of beautiful mountains

[Dent d'Oche] 

[Pointe de Dreveneuse] 

[Dents du Midi] 

[Dents Blanches] 

[(distant centre) Roc d'Enfer] 

[Mont Blanc, viewed through les Dents Blanches]

As well as visiting some wonderful mountain villages such as Les Lindarets...


...we also visited Switzerland a couple of times, including Geneva...


...and a day trip to Zermatt...


...and of course, up to the Schwarzsee to admire the Matterhorn...



...where we realised that there are people far more daring than us!



At the end of our week, we headed north through Alsace, for an overnight stop in the beautiful village of Riquewihr...







...on our way to a short stop at Disneyland Paris...








...one of the highlights of the visit being the end-of-day firework display.







Before returning home, we had a couple of days at the seaside in Le Touquet. Unfortunately the weather deserted us, but Alice didn't mind
