257 GOURDON (A.M.) et le Sentier du Paradis
Been up here today. The village is perched on top of an almost sheer drop of about 2000 ft. Unfortunately cloud came up just after we got there, so only got a few glimpses of the Gorge du Loup below. One of party turns out t [sic] have been one of Courtauld’s technical experts! Much better today inside – had hell of a day yesterday. Took the coast road down, called in at St. Raphael, & hear Blondie has produced a son, not due till April. Leaving for Paris 1700 hrs. Monday. No letter from you all this week since Monday.
Love,
Hubby.
