Flying Visit to Aix
Much to our delight, the ED decided on an impromptu visit this week. I haven’t seen her since Christmas, although the LSH saw her in London a couple of times as he passed through en route to far-off destinations.
She arrived on Sunday, in plenty of time to go swimming at the Saut du Moine :
She had to work during the week, though, which was a shame, but we managed to get to Aix-en-Provence for a quick visit.
and lots of fountains, in fact it’s know as the City of Fountains (Thanks for that piece of info, Sara!)
So a photo of the sisters in front of a fountain seemed appropriate. Easier said than done… eventually we all agreed that this one wasn’t too horrific :
Do you notice anything in the background? On the left? I’ll crop in to make it clearer :
The girls & I wanted to eat here, but the LSH and Ash had already settled elsewhere with beers so we gave in and joined them at the Café Le Verdon for lunch to give it the Thank Friday it’s Lunchtime treatment.
Tune in tomorrow to find out what we thought…
