The Champagne Section at Supermarche Champion

First Things First!

The Wall of the Barn

Basking by the Pool

On arrival at the Bordeaux airport (actually in Merignac), we picked up the car and went grocery shopping on our way to Vertheuil. I had to take a picture of the champagne section of the Champion supermarket. Oh, and we had to buy a couple or 6 bottles. First order of business on arrival at the house was to pop a bottle and drink by the plunge pool, which Alison and Patricia have now tiled and filled. The weather has cooled from just a couple of days ago, and it is cloudy, but it's still pleasant enough to have the doors and windows open, and the sun was peeking out every once in a while.

I think I'll try and use this week to settle into a stroll, maybe take 1 of the bikes out for a ride, watch the grapes ripen (they are hanging heavy on the vines) and rest up for the "touring" part of my vacation to come.
