And we're back....

We've just got back from a week away in France. I thought I'd ignore the piles of washing and post a few pics.  

We've been doing a lot of just beach holidays recently, and being a red-head that's not ideal for me. I'm not one for sitting on a beach all day everyday anyway, so this year we mixed it up a bit. We stayed in a hotel by the sea, but hired a car for day trips as well as having a few visits to the nearby beach. Being on the atlantic coast the sunsets were breathtaking.

We were near La Rochelle (remember that from your Tricolor textbooks at school? Monsieur Dupont & co?)

 La Rochelle was an amazing place to visit, and has the best aquarium! The girls were entranced and we spent hours on the one rainy morning of the week exploring the under sea world. And by the time we emerged, the sun was out again.

 R had a big birthday whilst we were there, and we had a day out in Cognac at his request. Such a stunning old town. But all good things have to end, and it's always good to get back home again.

I can't believe how much darker the evenings are since we've been back. It feels like autumn is really on its way. 

But on the plus side side the garden was full of goodies when we got back...
