On Sunday afternoon we took the Montenvers train to la Mer de Glace. At the end of the train ride you can take a small cable car down to the glacier and go through tunnels that have been dug in the ice. Emily went down to the tunnels, while he rest of us stayed at the station and ate ice cream. Actually, only Rowan and Niamh had ice cream, which Grammie Annie had to finish for them.
The trip back was a bit painful. Muriel screamed most of the way down until Emily remembered that we had Muriel's duck in the backpack. Muriel calmed down as soon as she had a firm grip on the duck. Spare ducks have been ordered.
