A day in Granville

Saturday, November 8, 2008

We've been having an absolute blast on our trip so far (not that anything less is expected from such amazing hosts). Today, we went into Granville, had a galette lunch, enjoyed the two hours of sun, visited Christian Dior's house and spent the evening at home with drinks and games and drinking games. I love vacation! Needless to say, I'm not giving up anymore of my vacay time to write a post, so my go at NaBloPoMo will have to be satisfied with a picture post. Enjoy!

Tasting some macarons after dinner. Passion fruit/milk chocolate & caramel fleur de sel won.

Gui waiting to head out in the rain.

The hearth with bacon & steaks grilling - where we stopped for lunch.

Granville - the sun is about to make its debut.

The casino on the beach - Granville.

An old German bunker.

The kids overlooking Granville.

A super narrow alleyway that we're apparently really excited about.

Christian Dior's old home - it was closed, but we got to stoll through the gardens.

Perfume sampling in the garden.

Gui taking a pick out of John Galiano's nose.

A bust of Christian Dior in his rose garden.

The sun finally came out and brought out a great light; the leaves were gorgeous.

A cemetery outside the Dior compound - overlooking the channel.

It turned out to be a beautiful day in Granville.

Crystal: It does feel good to be away from Paris. I totally understand why Parisians are so vacation-obsessed!! I know once I get back I have so much to do - number one being preparing for Thanksgiving!! Eeek!

Evolutionary: Muah-ha-ha-ha! We can rock some Jungle Speed!! So glad you're here, too!!
