Parc Peixotto on the last day of school

Today is Dave’s last day of school. If you’re hearing celebratory cheers, that’s probably just us. His time in Bordeaux has been dominated by a rather large project that included an audit of a winery…analyzing the cellar, grape processing, marketing, finances…the whole operation, so needless to say, now that it’s done (and he says it went well), we’re going out to celebrate tonight!

I walked him to the bus stop today, since it’s on my way to grocery store; on my way back, I decided to take the long way home, through Parc Peixotto, which also served as additional practice for my photography. (Sidebar: we tried to go out Sunday night and take pictures of the Super Moon— Saturday night was cloudy and even rained a bit— and the Sunday Super Moon in Bordeaux was a big let down. It was not very super. Boo.)

Across the street from Parc Peixotto

I love the look of this building across the street from Parc Peixotto. It’s wedged between two more modern buildings and I walk by it every day and just love the look of it.

Anyhow, wasn’t today a beautiful afternoon? It’s about to get better with a glass of wine at our local wine bar around the corner. Cheers to us!

  1. Great photos and congrats to Dave! It’s nice to see Parc Piexotto – last time we were there there was a great festival going on…Imagine then tons of people watching an “ABBA” band in front of one of those buildings performing as it got dark and then turning around and watching a beautiful firework show! Magical night – that parc is such a beautiful setting! Enjoy the rest of your stay here in Bordeaux! Looking forward to reading more about you upcoming adventures!

  2. Congrats to Dave!
    Pictures seem to indicate you guys are in a good place – nevertheless we look forward to August 14th when you are back in the good ol’ USA.

    Love “Bob”

  3. Congratulations, Dave!! Now…raise a glass to your dear old Uncle Andy and Aunt Karen tonight as we celebrate our 26th anniversary!
