Photo | Val d'Escreins, Vars, August 2019
2020
This was the year when we came out of the warmest winter on record into the pandemic of Covid-19 and then to October when Liz sadly passed away.

My favourite photo of Liz - at 3000 m in the mountains where she was always truly alive; temperature -20, face and hair covered in ice, and looking so happy!!

During March, April, May and June, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we introduced the Jardins d’amitié and Photos d’amitié albums to let us share our photos and visit each other during the periods of confinement.

In November we are once again in confinement with new Photos d’amitié albums.

Other years are linked from the
