The sun shone today. Oh yes, I remember what it is like, and this was definitely sunshine. At one memorable point, I even had to put on my sunglasses. Megève came out sparkling like a fairy tale from a European picture book.

A late breakfast having been enjoyed, I moved on to the more energetic program of the day: a massage, a turn in the pool, a soak in the hot tub...it's tough, but I don't mind...

In the afternoon I savoured the delights of the Village of Megève, dodging horse-drawn buggies and skiers coming off the piste, to indulge in a hot chocolate. It was 0 degrees, but bright and sunny, which (as I think we've established) is the main thing. I nosed around the shops (very nice), discussed French wine with a helpful young lady in a cave, selected chocolates for the inmates chez Madame Thomas. This evening - after the (apparently customary) mojitos, it is off to a restaurant. I am taking the precaution of preparing this blog post in advance. Just in case.
