Madiran and Bordeaux | France
Visiting Wine Country
We left Madiran, which reminds me of Jarvisburg, with all the farmland, open space, vineyards, and amount of businesses open in the winter season. We loved it there, the girls pulled each other on a sled through the rocky vineyards, and Poppy and Peaches argued over a baguette while wearing a beret in a Renault. Rather humerous!
We made it to Bordeaux, a large city built on the local wine trade. The Girond River run right through the town, similar to San Sebastian in Spain.
The evening we arrived, we thought with it being a city, there would be a place to get dinner earlier than 7pm. During the drive, the girls slept through lunch, and we hadn’t made it to a grocery store. We walked for awhile in the rain until we saw a pizza place that said, “Open Always!”.
We walked in as the owner, Remy, was walking out, but when he saw us, he put down his bag, turned around, and went back in to make us pizzas. He was a fiery man who let the girls help him cook the pizzas while he played “The Police” loudly and danced on the bench. The pizzas were wonderful, and the service was so entertaining, it has to be the most memorable meal of the trip!
We woke up today to heavy rain, and a crabby Peachie Pie. We tried for an early nap, but was unsuccessful, so we ventured out as soon as the rain let up.
We rode a local ferry up and down the river for 2 euros pp, which dodged large logs, and other floating objects. I loved watching John look longingly out the window at the wine museum that we passed, not once, but twice. It was a stop but not on our boat.
We found a park and went to the CAP Science Museum to see the Mummy Exhibit, which Pops loved and of which Peaches was terrified.
