Congrats to Chicklet and her family. Hope the celebratory lunch is good.
We took Possum to La Rochelle - again - yesterday. It's her favourite place at the mo and this time we did touristy things and visited the Bunker museum - bomb shelter cellar dug out under a hotel by German occupational navy to sit out bomb raids. Packed with info including stuff on Vichy and Jews which always makes me cross and a memorial list for those shot, including 3 women added by another hand as the list was only men!, and those deported as slave labour. On a more cheerful note, it was sunny and we also visited the taller of the two towers guarding the entry to the old port.
Some shopping for Possum and she and I stayed on to have dinner by the old port and hope for sunset pics while OH went home to check his doggies before coming back to fetch us. I caught a bit of sun on my shoulders and have more pink bits than the sunset. Next time, we'll take one of the cruises that goes out into the bay and tours islands and other sites at sunset. It's a lovely town with a great atmosphere and fascinating people watching as the place is buzzing with locals, tourists, entertainers, street markets ........
Grey today but the wind has swung to the south so none of hoped for rain falling here after all. Hosta - need to send it here please. Too dry to garden so I'm on sewing again.
Have a good day everyone and get well soon, all those with lurgies.
