ROAD TRIP DAY NINETEEN: Yesterday afternoon, we arrived in Saint-Emilion in top form. Decorated with lively, colorful flags strung all about the town, some of them in the shape of t-shirts, Saint-Emilion is preparing for the Tour de France. 🚴 After an eleven-year absence, the Tour de France returns to the Gironde on July 16th and 17th, with a time trial between Libourne and Saint-Emilion.
As we pulled up in front of the gite, Camille met us at the car. This lovely woman, youthful, full of positive energy and a gorgeous smile, toured us around the house and helped us to settle in. It was the perfect start to our stay. 🥰
In today’s story, the video starts with scenes of the countryside as we moved north, from Carcassonne to the wine region of Bordeaux. You’ll join us as we arrive at Saint-Emilion. And that is followed by a tour of our vacation home. 👏
With proximity to the ocean, the daily seafood catch 🎣is a stunning variety of all sorts of lovely fish to choose from. Jeff barbequed sardines and anchovies, and I made a gremolata to go on top. We snacked on roquette, bread, 🥖 and fresh butter with sea salt. And, of course, wine! 🍷 Our hosts picked out a gorgeous Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc from Chateau Haut-Riot.
A big thanks to @le_jardin_villemaurine for being such wonderful hosts. Head on up to my story now to see the inside of this lovely home. ☝️☝️
I hope you enjoy this portion of our virtual road trip togther. Wishing you a wonderful day,
Bisous and big hugs 🤗 from France,
🇫🇷 France 🇫🇷, forever.
