It was another day of rain-slicked streets and hair- frizzing mist all day. We browsed the wonderful shops, walking past structures built in the 1700’s. Our “local”cathedral is St. Seurin, where we left some of Nana Weinberger’s ashes under a rose bush and lit a candle with a prayer for restored health for my brother Chuck.
Once again we had not made a very early start, so before we knew it, the lunch hour was upon us. The rain started in earnest and we chose the Café Opéra in the Grand Theater for a very enjoyable respite of 2 hours.
By 3 pm we actually decided to head home and figure out our packing situation. Honestly, we were just tired. I’ve been away from home for over 3 weeks and Don for 2 weeks. He’s been hauling our butts all over France in our cute little FIAT 500. We needed some down time.
BTW, our accommodations are a great Air BnB find.
Anyhow, we re-packed and re-charged our individual batteries, Don with a nap and me with a cuppa tea and blog-writing. The rain and mist continued, but we ventured out with umbrellas and a desire to see Bordeaux at night.
Farewell to a truly beautiful and memorable city and country. We’ll drink your wine and eat your canelés, and we’ll carry your memories in our hearts!
