In the area 29th May - 1st June. Clear in the mornings and dramatic thunderstorms every afternoon - including with so much hail down to valley level, it looked as if it had been snowing. In a 24 hour period 30/31st May I did a walk down into to canyon bottom and back from Chalet de la Maline - climbed Montagne de Robion 1660m overlooking the gorges - and did another short day walk from Point Sublime down into gorges and along to the end of the tunnel du Bauo (670m) and back up again.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
