winter sunshine

Winter may be still digging in its heels, but for the last couple of days in Luz, the sun has been summer bright. The snow has all but melted down here in the village, but the peaks round about are all still gleaming gloriously white.

It is the last weekend of the Winter holidays and Toulouse and Bordeaux have come for a day out, wandering through the streets of the historic old quarter, crowding into the restaurants, clogging up the supermarkets. The holiday mood was infectious as I strolled across the village, basket in my hand, to stock up on groceries for the coming week.

More snow may be forecast for next week, but for now, I am sat out on the balcony with my book, enjoying this avant gout of the Spring.
