Happy 4th of July - Enjoy your weekend
Just a quick post this morning to wish all my American readers a Happy 4th of July. I hope everyone is able to enjoy it and spend it with family and friends. Additional thoughts going out to military men and women who continue to protect the Free world. Their dedication is truly at the heart of what who we are as Americans.In France, their Independence day is July 14th, but being American and having children who have grown up enjoying time with family and friends for the 4th of July. We like to celebrate it in some way. What is lucky about living in a community where we have Americans friends. This year we are headed to Cap Ferret to celebrate.
It will be a tradition afternoon barbecue filled with games, fun and of course swimming. What is lovely about Cap Ferret is that there is a choice of swimming on the Bassin side or on the ocean. Either choice is makes for a lovely time and it's such a picturesque setting.
So as I prepare for our departure for the day - I wanted to take the opportunity to share a few photos of Cap Ferret with everyone. It's a beautiful - natural spot and so perfect for a hot summer day!
These photos were taken last August - this area is so natural, still a bit wild and I'm definitely looking forward to spending our afternoon there. After of week of being in some of the hottest weather that France has experienced - it will be nice to cool off! It's similar to Cape Cod in Massachusetts - you need to get an early start to avoid the masses of traffic heading out there.
So Happy 4th of July for those of you who are celebrating! Enjoy your day and here' s to toasting Independence and Freedom! Bon Weekend!
