Double Whammy

Yesterday morning, we took a quick trip up to Arolla, to have a stroll along the valley and to see the impressive Mont Collon and its glacier.  After a delicious cheese fondue lunch, we then drove down the Rhone valley to Aigle, to watch the Prologue of the Tour de Romandie cycle race.

I’ve often said that it’s hard to take a bad photograph in Switzerland, but yesterday I proved that it is indeed possible – several times.  The cyclists go so fast, you cannot capture them exactly as you’d like.  Luckily Jen and Adam had much more success, so many of the photos below are theirs.  The race sponsors are extremely generous with their free promotional items and, apart from the many pens, hats and bags that we were all given, Alastair was overjoyed with the four cowbells that he received.  🔔🔔🔔🔔  I’m sure the cyclists appreciated the extra support. 🙂

(You may have noticed that I’ve written this post instead of Alastair, as he was starting to get more Likes than me…!)

    • Yes, I was also worried that two recent followers might think it was Alasatair’s blog! 🙂 I thought about posting a batch of ‘bad’ pictures (to prove my point) but decided not to. I’ll have a look later and send you a few…
