Above the CloudsAbove the CloudsAbove the Clouds

The rain and mist descend on Grimentz, Switzerland.
Boy, have I enjoyed the past few days. Tramp and I (Lady, Gerri's bike) have been resting comfortably in the foyer of the Haase's chalet. Bill cleaned us up; we have been dry and warm and lazy since Sunday afternoon.

Tomorrow, however, it will be back on the road (as long as it doesn't rain again). Bill and Gerri walked into town a couple ot times today for the exercise and for a few groceries. It rained off and on but they kept a fire going in the fireplace and even managed to get all their laundry washed. Hopefully, it will dry by tomorrow morning.

At times today the clouds were actually below the chalet.

So, right now, I think I'll go finish my afternoon nap as the two of them prepare for their ride out of here and for the next few days of riding through the Rhone Valley of Switzerland.
