It is Sunday and vacation will officially be over when I wake up in about 12 hours time. It has been a great 3 weeks, always sorry to see it end. The beginning of our holiday was spent with my family, the second week with my husband’s family, and the third week was mostly the four of us. This is my last vacation post, then back to “regular programming”.
This past week we spent a lot of time eating :
We were in the Bordeaux region, so of course, wine tasting was on the agenda. We visited St Emilion (VERY highly recommended) for its history and of course had to do some wine tasting :
We also visited the city of Bordeaux. They have this fountain that goes from being mirror like to a fog fountain, the Water Mirror. We had fun playing around and the cool water felt so great on our feet after hours of walking around.
And we visited the Grand Theater where they were having an exhibit with the costumes from several of the ballet and opera productions.
The girls got to try on some of them.
We also enjoyed the house (and garden) we rented.
… especially enjoyed watching our cat being teased by another cat on the other side of the fence !
I had run 45 km the week before and my shins were asking me for a break. With all the walking we did in St. Emilion and Bordeaux, I only ran once, 8,5 km on Friday, and walked once with my husband, 5,5 km on Thursday. My body thanked me ! It was back to the treadmill this morning (Sunday) because of the rain. I was happy for the variety of the gym, as I got to do some weight work also.
So now, it is back to real life. We LOVED our vacation and there is so much to discover in the South Western Coast of France. If you are ever thinking about going, I HIGHLY recommend it.
How was your week ? Any vacation ? Getting ready for back to school ?
