This past weekend, Tom, Dagny and I headed to La Rochelle, France. The seaport town is the capital of the Charente-Maritime department and about two hours by car from where we live. We couldn’t have asked for better weather! Then on Sunday, we went to Ile de Re which is an island connected to La Rochelle by a 2.9 kilometer bridge.
Our trip started off at the Old Port in La Rochelle, France.
After a long day of walking around, here’s Dagny enjoying our queen size bed at the hotel. She’s almost 10 months old and looks as regal as ever!
And the courtyard gardens at the hotel.
The hotel chandelier in our room.
Some graffiti that actually looked pretty cool on the way to the park.
Here’s the Old Port area at night.
And a deserted street on the walk home. Love the runway lights!
On Sunday, we made the short drive to Ile de Re, France. Here’s one of our Ile de Re photos at a lighthouse on St. Martin de Re.
And the main shopping and restaurant area of St. Martin de Re.
Can’t wait to go back!
