A day in Granville

We've been having an absolute blast on our trip so far (not that anything less is expected from such amazing hosts). Today, we went into Granville, had a galette lunch, enjoyed the two hours of sun, visited Christian Dior's house and spent the evening at home with drinks and games and drinking games. I love vacation! Needless to say, I'm not giving up anymore of my vacay time to write a post, so my go at NaBloPoMo will have to be satisfied with a picture post. Enjoy!

Tasting some macarons after dinner. Passion fruit/milk chocolate & caramel fleur de sel won.

Gui waiting to head out in the rain.

The hearth with bacon & steaks grilling - where we stopped for lunch.

Granville - the sun is about to make its debut.

The casino on the beach - Granville.

An old German bunker.

The kids overlooking Granville.

A super narrow alleyway that we're apparently really excited about.

Christian Dior's old home - it was closed, but we got to stoll through the gardens.

Perfume sampling in the garden.

Gui taking a pick out of John Galiano's nose.

A bust of Christian Dior in his rose garden.

The sun finally came out and brought out a great light; the leaves were gorgeous.

A cemetery outside the Dior compound - overlooking the channel.

It turned out to be a beautiful day in Granville.

Crystal: It does feel good to be away from Paris. I totally understand why Parisians are so vacation-obsessed!! I know once I get back I have so much to do - number one being preparing for Thanksgiving!! Eeek!

Evolutionary: Muah-ha-ha-ha! We can rock some Jungle Speed!! So glad you're here, too!!
