A spot for me to blog on life in my garden, where I grow things, read things, drink tea and ponder. An important principle for me is living a simple life - to live simply so that others may simply live
Good on ya! What an achievement - I thought you were goig to say you watching le tour fly past - but you actually climbed it!That's what I call living your blog!
Lucky you to have been in Alp d’Huez during the Tour and then to have climbed it too! Since I was a child in France I have heard the Tour in July, first on the radio, then on TV when I was a teenager when we had our first TV. Now, an expat in the US, I watch it live on TV – have to get up early in Atlanta to watch it. Well bravo to your lad – Cadel did a great job! He is a wonderful athlete. I have been watching him for several years and was hoping he would be the one today at the time trial instead of Andy Schleck – Andy is nice too but he’ll get it right sometime in the future. And wasn’t Thomas Voeckler amazing? I never thought he could last that long. It will be something for you to hear the Australian anthem on the Champs Elysées tomorrow – I would love to be there (we were there in May.) I’ll be there too – looking on TV from the Atlanta area. I’ll come back to read more of your blog.
I am impressed--you not only witnessed the momentous events of that day; you then climbed Alp d'Huez! That's traveler's stamina, for sure.
Congratulations! That's one big mountain to climb so quickly (though it probably didn't seem quickly after an hour and a half!)
