After a reasonable bivouac last night, day dawned fine and I set off down from the hut, but lost momentum. After an ice cream to try to settle stomach cramps, thunder threatened, so I decided to go no further than the tourist resort of Largo di Antona rather than press on and bivvy in the open. The crowds of people visiting the hydro lake for the day are quite a shock after my lonely walks, but they all disappeared by evening. I need a rest, so am staying at an albergo, after lazing in a deck chair this afternoon waiting for the storm. I've a fair old day tomorrow over the Pizzo del Ton on my way to Borca. Hoping to reach Courmayeur in the next eight days.
