Flurry was enjoying the views, as usual.
The closest grave belonged to Sophie Carre, who died in 1994, aged 10 - she would have been the same age as Anne's daughter Polly if she was still alive. Spare her a thought, or a prayer, or whatever you do...

Finally, the trail levelled off, and then we began the long descent into St Auban sur Ouveze.
As we were riding along the ridge, we could see the road from Montbrun beneath use. All of a sudden, what did we see but a blue jeep and horsebox - the LSH was on his way! Unfortunately, I missed the photo by about 5 seconds - désolée!

We are all getting fitter, and although Anne and I still walk a fair bit every day, just to give our legs and bums a break, we're not suffering from cramps and aches as much as we were at the start. The horses seem to be coping fine, although we might plan on an easier day tomorrow... we'll see what the forecast is like in the morning.
