Mon anniversaire avec le Tour de France -

Another birthday has come and gone . It was a fun, action packed day . Also for those who say, 'ha one year older ' , I reply with the words of Lauren Bacall , "I am not a has-been. I am a will be " and the Miss V in me adds , old 'enough' is all that matters.
Much was seen , done and experienced and made even more magical by some amazing gifts from Nature. After an early swim , followed by coffee and cake I was taken to view the Tour de France . Excitement enough but , en route what should we spot but this amazing Heron. As a result of being held spell bound , formula one type driving ensured we got to a superb view point . The reward .... colourful spectacle . See the video , hear the video . All shop windows were decorated to celebrate this event . Astonishing . On the return journey one could only marvel at the contrast .... Tour de France = speed , nature = calm . In the evening a sumptuous meal at a local restaurant . Add to this Hermes 24 Faubourg , a Renault Clio *, plus ,[wait for it ] Bridget Jones's Diary and you have but some idea .

* In the collage you see a furry Ms V standing by a Clio . Errr my pressie is a not quite as large .Still it brings to mind two sayings :-

'small is beautiful ' and 'keep death of the road '
