Three noise-free nights! Dare we believe that our intruder truly is gone…..never to return?? We’re keeping our fingers crossed.
Craig and I were preparing the house and the boat for our trip home when we heard a horrible crash! France has a Good Samaritan law requiring you to help anyone who’s injured….so, fearing the worst, we each looked out our respective windows. A boat was passing under the bridge….the captain and passengers had ducked their heads down but forgot about the bicycles on the Flying Bridge behind them. CRASH, BANG, CRUNCH…..down went the bikes…..taking the boat’s railing with them….. thankfully, no one was hurt. Hope the captain took out the optional damage insurance when he rented the boat.
After that bit of excitement, it was time to get ready for my last rendezvous with Angelique….my taskmaster and cheerleader during these past few months. She, too, was touched by my gift and asked me to stop in to say “hello” when I return in October…..but, always the disciplinarian, said I must have no cane when I return.
She also noticed my new Crocs…..something I swore I’d never buy…..but, knowing none of my shoes will accommodate a swollen foot, they were reluctantly purchased for the long plane ride home. No chic French pumps for me this trip.
And no fine dining for us today…..we need to empty out the refrigerator. Hmmm, let’s see…..wine and cheese? Not so bad after all.
See you soon…..a bientôt
