I’ve just returned from a lovely holiday in France, staying with D’s mum and her husband
On the Sunday I thought I’d attempt another photo an hour (the the first one here)
It didn’t quite work to plan (I lose track of time when not at work!) but I thought I’d share the photos anyway… with estimated timings… and a little more than one photo in some hours…
Wake up, look out of bedroom window to see some people have been up (literally) for a little while longer!
A lovely breakfast with D’s mum’s delicious homemade jams – apricot with cinnamon, and a thick plum jam with nuts and pepper – yum!
We head off to St Cyprian and stroll around the colourful market – where I buy some amazing sugarless nougat as a gift for my parents and try on hats
You’ll already know how much I love French markets if you read my post last year – so much wonderful, fresh produce!
We stroll uphill, through the narrow streets to the church – and hear Sunday worshippers singing as we stood outside
After strolling back into the centre ville, we had a quick rest in the sunshine before meeting D’s mum for a coffee
Coffee drunk and a decision made on which hat to buy, we head back to the car…
And on the way bumped into a friend of D’s mum, who was carrying a beautiful bunch of flowers
By the early afternoon the sun is out in force, and more than warm enough for us to have the roof down on the drive back to the house
A Sunday lunch of croissants and strawberries in the sunshine!
2pm… 3pm… 4pm… etc…
And now onto the serious business of reading by the pool all afternoon!
We hadn’t packed our swim suits as we hadn’t expected such amazing weather (up to 31c!) – although swimming in an unheated pool would still have been pretty brave
We head inside to cool off a little before dinner and I spot the sun shining through the kitchen window and onto the fruit bowl
We enjoy dinner outside – starting with some of the Turkish bread bought at the market
We watch the sun disappear over the horizon as we eat dinner, drink wine and chatter away
Have you been away recently? Managed to catch any final summer sun?
