I still have a few pictures to show you from our break in France. We all went one day to Saint Emilion which is smaller than I thought it would be, but every other shop was a wine shop of course! As you can see from the above picture the weather was amazing and the cafe society was in full swing.
Saint Emilion’s history stretches back to Roman times, when the Roman ruler Decimus Magnus Ausonius founded a small property here in the 4th century, when the Romans controlled Gaul (France). The 1800s were a great time for Bordeaux’s winemakers, as their produce was finding favour across Europe bringing a new found era of prosperity for Saint Emilion’s many Chateaus which has continued into the 21st Century. It became a UNESCO World Heritage site on December 2nd 1999 (Youngest’s Birthday!).
We all had a great day, made better because the weather was warm and sunny and very summery!!!!!
Today is house job day as tomorrow I have some errands to run. Treacle is busy helping by getting all her toys out of her toy basket, the ones I have just tidied up!!!!!!
Hope you are all having a Thrilling Thursday
Hugs, Susie x
