Kangaroos in France
13.07.2015 - 13.07.2015
The last thing you expect to see is a Kangaroo in France - not even a "hay" sculpture, just out of Valloire there she was in all her glory !
It was a sculpture competition -
a cheeky person placed an Aussie sticker on the Kangaroo stand - who would do that ????
Continuing on the Route des Grandes Alpes from Valloire we rode over the Col du Galivier (2646m)
The scenery is now really rugged, rocky and quite amazing - loving it !!
A little bit of snow still appearing on high peaks -
Taking a diversion we rode out to Mt. Pelvoux (3946m) just to have a look, not able to go to the top we returned back to Briancon for lunch
Then on to Col d'Izoard (2360m) followed by the Combre du Queyras and Col de Vars (2109m)
Then into Barcelonnette for the night - another great French village with lots happening in the town square.
Its still very hot and we were not really hungry so decided to order a couple of Bruschetta's and see if we wanted more after that -
yes I think that was definitely enough !!
People watching is a lot of fun, the young girls were having a lovely time entertaining this cute little boy in the square-
