Hey everyone! Well, I made it! When I was still in the office at almost 4 in the morning and had not packed, I have to admit that I was getting a little nervous! I was so relieved once I got on the plane although I still didn't sleep that much. We had a great time in Caen and we actually made it to the castle of William the Conqueror the day we arrived. We left Caen this morning and are now safely in Vimoutiers. Of course, we are at our "second home" in Normandy...Les Patis...the beautiful cottage we stay in every year. It is so neat to return to the same place since we are familiar with it. The people are so nice and that just makes the experience that much better. Tonight, we just had the most wonderful dinner at the cottage. Casey worked it out with the owner to have a home-cooked dinner typical of one you would have in Normandy. Thiis husband and wife team were the sweetest people and I enjoyed talking to them They looked so nervous and of course, they spoke no English. They just lit up when they realized I spoke French! I really enjoyed talking to them and what a wonderful dinner! Everyone seemed to enjoy it so that was even better!
OK, a special bonjour to my precious nieces and nephew... Carolina, JA, Kacie and Kerri! Of course, to my Mom and sisters, I know how much you would love to be here!
Au revoir for now untiil the next blog!
