Sunday, Brilliant Sunday

THE MOUNTAINS AROUND the France/Italy border have received a huge amount of snow so far this winter. A local ski resort (Isola 2000) has received nearly 8 meters. For those of us who live a bit nearer the sea this has meant a lot of rain this winter...a lot. But we've finally put together a couple of nice days in a row with today being one of the nicest -- brilliant sunshine and a deep, deep blue sea. After a couple of months of what can only be described as damp and cold, the nice days are really nice.

This photo is taken from about the same area as the masthead on this blog -- but you can really see how much snow there is this year. We're getting ready to head up to the snow right now (Henry has had his snow suit on for a good two hours).
