HOLIDAYS DAY 7

The whole morning we spent at home, I was blogging, Nicole reading and Dominique had workers here for the heating ! It rained and it was quiet cool and for the first time we had to eat our breakfast and lunch inside. But fortunately in the afternoon it cleared up and stopped raining so we went to Yvoire  an old city  well known for its medieval buildings and beautiful flower decoration during the summer season. It is also one of the "most beautiful villages of France". Which is certainly true. I loved it very much.



We admired the little old houses all decorated with beautiful flowers in all colors, walked on the cobbled streets,and entered in some old shops.






We stopped at the little habour, and a swan colony came towards us, one even posed like a professional model. When we returned home it started to rain again and we just made it before the cats and dogs fell from heaven.



After supper Dominique and Nicole played a game  with numbers which I found too complicated as an excuse, because numbers and I are the worst enemies. I continued to sort out my pictures.

Then we went to bed, again tired and happy we had another nice day.

Yvoire is beautiful, I want to live there. But I hate gardening so I might be thrown out. I agree with you, any game played with cards, numbers or rules I refuse to play.

Such a lovely little place for a walk. And I love to play Rummikub!!!

What a quaint and beautiful town. Thanks for sharing all the photos with me. I love all indoor games; I've brought a few from SA with me: 30 Seconds, playing cards etc. Grant says we once played Rummikub yet I can't remember it! Have a great day. Jo

You are in such a nice place! It's an area I never visited but from what you've posted it's well worth a trip!

Such a beautiful place. Too bad the weather is not cooperating.

Like you i don't like so much games with numbers! And I would do the same as you did! Nice middle age village!

Fabulous little village; can well believe it is one of the most beautiful in the country! I don't do numbers either.
