This morning was awesome. The views across the valley from the balcony with my morning porridge just rocked so decided to document what was going on a little bit. Geeky I know but hey - I'm a nerd.
Step 1. Make porridge (1/2 milk, 1/2 water - 2 spoons of blackberry jam) and sit on balcony chewing thoughtfully. Look over the three areas I can see:
Rays of sun coming over Mont Blanc and zapping Chamonix.
Les Houches waking up in warmth.
Pure blue skies over Servoz.
Step 2. Drive into Chamonix (6 minutes) via the scenic route through Les Bossons. Find car parking place (dependent on tourist density) and then walk to office on the Rue Paccard:
Step 3. Meander to boulangerie and buy rustic bread and jam for secondary breakfast/snacking:
Step 4. Enter office on Rue Paccard and check mail (our mailbox is second from the left on the bottom row):
Step 5. Eat second breakfast looking out of office up at Aiguille du Midi/Mont Blanc and read mail:
Step 6. Work!
