Fete de L'Huîtres et du Pineau

Hello lovelies,

Hope you are still enjoying the summer time. In one week vacation is over and we have to go back to the rutine, but before that all happens, I would like to share with  you some more pictures of our holiday, these are from a festival that we allways attend each time we go to Île d'Oleron, which takes place once a year, and it is called Fete de L'Huîtres et du Pineau.

Delicious oysters and pinot, either red or white (I love both) are offered this day. Unfortunately this year, it was raining cats and dogs, we all got wet, but it was not excuse for us not to attend.

You can also take a walk to the Harbour and arounds, and buy handmade things in the different super cute colorfull Ateliers opened at night. such handmade soaps, jewerly, and so on, or let you do some summer braids if you have long hair.

Hope you like the pictures..... and I leave for for now :).......ohhh, do not forget to leave a comment :)

Have a great week and lot of positive vibres.


Handmade soaps with a lot of different delicious aromas

A walk to Harbour before is dark.

Mussels cooked with fire, they are delicious. Despite the rain, the fire continues....
Be prepared to get all black if you eat them, you cannot avoid i believe me.

Super kind Monsieur running to his food stand with the Baguette....He was in hurry, but still super kind to  with a great smile for my camera and my blog. :). Merci beacoup Monsieur.

Even though I cannot read what it is writting on the glove, it's to small and I could not understand every letter I thought it would be funny to take a shot of it, specially the colors contrast is what  I love most.
If someone happens to decipher what is writting there, I would be more than happy to know (hopefully nothing bad?) hihih

Colorfull Ateliers.

Château de la Gataudière

Dear  followers,

I hope you are spending a wonderful summer time with your lovelies.

We were in France this summer, it was a one day to other day decision. On Tuesday evening we Googled about two hours for places to go and  stay, and within a couple a minutes we booked two places in île De Re and île d'Oleron.

At  the next day, we stood up early, filled the car with our bikes, suitcases, new brand camping stuffs bought a couple of weeks before.

Usually we know pretty much in advance what are we undertaking in summer, but this year, it was a little bit different. The kids wanted long ago to go camping, I was of course, totally against and not convinced at all, but after letting the children convinced me, I agreed (I couldn't believe I said YES,  but thought: "why not give it a try"? well, I have to tell you,  I LOVED IT!!!!

First I imagined myself totally uncomfortable, sweating the whole day, every day and night walking miles to find the next bathroom in the camping, and what about my makeup? insects? mosquitos? sharing bathrooms with other unknown people, or staying at the line waiting for a free bathroom.....I imagined the worst! but once there, I absolutely LOVE IT. Nothing of that bad things I imagined happened.

All bathrooms were super clean and always free when I need them, I could take wonderful showers, all was perfect! the weather was fantastic, except one night, it rained at lot, but hearing the strong raining falling on the roofs of our tents was a fantastic experience. I did not sleep at all that night, I could'nt stop hearing the rain, I was out there, just protected by a plastic roof and I survived :).

Let  me show here a couple pictures I took from  the Château de la Gataudière's garden. Our children wanted to go squad driving, and to my surprise, the green areas of the castle was dedicated to different children activities, like squad, acrobatics, climbing etc.  so, I took the opportunity once there to take some garden pictures .

By the way, this place can be booked for parties, weddings and so on. I could marry my husband again just to make the party here :) It is really gorgeous outdoor  (I did not have the time to visit inside).

Hope you like the pictures I am showing you today, if so, do let me know this by letting a comment here by following me on Instagram and Pinterst too, I would be very happy reading you back.

Continue having a great summer time and until my next post!
