Le Grand Départ

Today we headed south along with the rest of France for August vacation. Just about all of France takes the month of August off and so “Le Grand Départ” takes place on August 1st. It just so happened our itinerary coincided with Le Grand Depart (The Great Departure).

After a seven hour drive, we arrived at our charming rental house in the Périgord region which lies east of Bordeaux.

Waiting for us on the table were French cheeses, fruits, wine, bread, ham, coffee, jam, and foie gras, the speciality of the region. Harrison and Camille quickly located the bicycles and took a ride around the property. Then we ate our first dinner here outside and sat back to attend the sunset right out our back door.
