WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of April 28. If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.
I was still in France half of the weekend. Early morning we got a phone call from the restaurant Mafana neay Hyeres, that the cow had fallen down from the exposition wall ! Claudie and I quickly drove over there to repair the damage. Claudie was better then I in hammering stronger nails so I was just the supervisor.
We noticed that more people had left little messages in the "Golden book" and checked the other paintings before driving home again.
The so beautiful weather had turned into rain and it was rather cool ! But nevertheless Claudie wanted to show me the Salins-d'Hyères an area of salt marshes along the coast. They are one of the most remarkable natural areas of the Mediterranean shore.
These saline were operated from 963 AD to 1995 for the production of salt.
That's how they should have looked ! It's also a paradise for birds, but I didn't see any !
There was a kite competition going on despite the rain ! We looked a bit, and I took this picture of Claudie, her daughters and the boyfriend who hid behind the car.
Claudie's daughter Mélissa took these pictures of me, while I was walking back from my photo shooting ! It was so awful, that we decided to drive back and rather have a drink at the Sanary beach.
There the rain had stopped and the sun came out !
and the boyfriend who is a baker had brought these very yummy little cakes he had brought for me so that I could taste his work ! They didn't last long in the box !
Then came the moment to say good bye, and Claudie drove me to the airport in Marseille. It was still raining and cold ! My flight was smooth and I could work on my photos.
Mr. G. was waiting for me in SUNSHINE ! It should have been the other way around, as the French Riviera is rather famous for its good weather !
From my four cats only Rosie showed that she was happy and took a nap, while I rested for a while and watched TV while Oscar the Robot mowed the lawn ! Nature had changed, the grass had grown and flowers were blooming ! It seems that spring has finally arrived !
I unpacked my suitcase and went early to bed ! What a wonderful break I had in my routine life ! Tomorrow I will certainly be full of energy !!
