Where am I??

Autumn in the wine growing regions of France is truely magnificent, be it Cahors where we normally stay or the Bordeaux region where we are presently staying. The grapes are due to be harvested and the vines are begining to change to a wonderful mottled orange and red.

Bordeaux is a magnificent city. Grande archetecture mixed with the hustle and bustle of every day life.I was in 7th heaven wandering through the Quarter St Michel, an area full of antique shops. So much to see -so much to admire.  

 The quirky chairs left along the promenade by the Garonne.

Lunch time in Sauveterre

“Things are no moment in themselves, only their influence upon our lives is important. They are a means to an end and that end is richness of life.”
