Clouds warn us of changes in the weather. These clouds were gathering on our last afternoon in Saas Fee. And sure enough the weather changed.
After my 12 mile walk the previous day, and an inversion injury to my right ankle, I spent the day walking around the village and up to the moraine lake. Another hatful of images that you will see something of in the weeks ahead. The ankle is fine, by the way: colourful but I’m walking pain-free. Thanks for your commiserations.
Back to the picture. By mid-afternoon on that last day, towering Cumulus cloud was building over the Portjengrat, close to the Italian border. And as expected rain followed – overnight and throughout most of the next day as we travelled home: By Electro-Taxi to the Bus, to travel back down the valley to catch the Train, to wait at the Airport for the Flight (delayed), to stand in line through Border Control at Heathrow, then wait for the Bus to take us to long-term Parking, to collect the Car to drive home. We left the Hotel at 1130 and arrived home at 2300 (all times in CEST). There’s an awful lot of hanging about in that eleven and half hours of travel time!
Now the suitcase is unpacked, the grass mown, the images consolidated on the iMac, and I’m back in business. Apologies that all your Blogs have been neglected for the last fortnight – I will start my daily round of viewing and ‘liking’ and commenting this weekend. Thanks so much for all your comments – they are always appreciated
