much needed fresh air

France, HéraultCozy Memories3 Comments

I had written a totally different, long and boring post, but I erased it, and am sparing you from boredom.

Instead here are snapshots from yesterday afternoon at La Grande Motte (seaside town), where we went after our eldest son left for England. (sob) You can click the photos to enlarge.

It was very windy & there were lots of kite surfers (hardly ever so much wind, actually, and hardly ever so many kite surfers at once !) Glad we went, minus one child, because we clearly needed some fresh air. Helped dusting the cobwebs ! It's still pretty intense in the mental area since we don't have any more news about hubby relocation (or not). I'm so done with waiting for a single tiny piece of news, I'm sincerely over it.

I hope your weekend was great & your week off to a great start ! Thanks for stopping by !

early August nature day trip

Hérault, natureCozy Memories2 Comments

Two weeks ago, on the 4th of August, it was still pretty hot (rain all over the country last week had made our temps drop but it's warm again this week) and we'd been on a little nature day trip around Saint Jean de Buèges. I didn't take many photos, actually there are all here.

We'll be away tomorrow & on Friday, for a short trip to a local mountain, where is the last remaining weather station in France. We always go once a year over there, it's like a family tradition. It's not too far yet it is refreshing & "exotic" enough. We plan to explore (once again) the Lac des Pises (click the name for photos from me & others on Flickr)

I hope to come back with loads of nature photos to share with you all next week ! Until then, be well, and enjoy every minute !
