A new week in the sunshine and a walk first thing this morning up to the Lac d'Allos which is a large lake at altitude (2230m) so I was higher than anyone in the UK - mind you I am at the chalet too (1800m)

And we saw some marmottes on the way to the refuge too, sitting/lying on the rocks sunning themselves & occasionally scratching fleas!

Always good to see these creatures, they are used to seeing people at the lake so they are not too shy.

And it's inchie day! The theme for this week is windows....

My hotel room?

Acetate aperture 

Hope my sunny skies are reaching you :-)

  6. I hve never seen a marmotte, looks a bit like a groundhog. Love the windows you have and enjoy your time with natures beauty

  7. Hi, Sally! No need to apologize for not stopping by for a while! ;) I haven't been so good myself at keeping up with visiting, especially the last while with the days being warmer and family life a bit busier due to summer break being in session! :)
    Looked through some of your latest posts just now and your photos are SO interesting! Those windows are fantastic!!! The rich color in the first is my favorite, but I love what looks like the reflection of the clouds in the second one!

  8. Terrific idea to chose a special window--love it
