Up the Aiguille du Midi, at 3200m and -7 degrees. Then we went on the mountain train. A busy day, but the weather was great : )
For the last week I have been in the north of France with kB, my mum and my dad.
This post will be the project 365 shots from the week, and a little comment, then I will do another post with spares.
We started off the week with a trip to the supermarket in the morning, then a four hour drive to the ferry, four hours on the ferry (of which I was asleep before we had even left port) and then a 40 minute drive to the house. This was a quick “in the car” snap, as we got stuck in traffic.
We had a trip to Rouen to practice the drive there as we were catching the train to Paris there on Wednesday morning at 8am! It was about an hour away, although we did get lost when my dad decided to follow the sign posts rather than the sat nav – we ended up in an industrial estate.
Lovely and hot on the Tuesday – and it was my dads birthday! We went to a beach that was very pretty, but I can’t remember the name of it.
Me and kB “got done” by a life guard because he was blowing his whistle because the tide was coming in but I wanted to take a shot so we ignored him… Only for a minute or so! He scowled at us as we came in. Did loads of walking then came home and went out for tea, today’s shot was taken just after tea 🙂
Another beach! This one was called “the Beach of Death” because we saw 3 dead dogfish and countless dead crabs. Decided to just go for it with this shot, but as the tide was coming in rather quickly it’s not quite what I had in mind. Got soaked then had to lie in the sun to dry off – this was the first “proper” beach we had seen all week, all the others were just pebbles. Last day though so no more beachy funtimes : (
On the ferry on the way home : )
Sure early 3am get up to get to the ferry for 430 – did not envy my dads 4 hour drive home after that, and I napped most of the ferry ride and drive home!
A bit mardy from lack of sleep, but looking forward to getting into my own bed!
