The last week

Last Friday we went on an outing with the Hendrixes to Cerdon, a village about 45 minutes away, known for their bubbly rosé.  We toured a wine-maker's factory, hiked up to a high hill above the town church and cemetery, had a delicious lunch, and hiked near a waterfall.  

Saturday we went into Lyon and strolled from the opera to Bellecour, had kebabs, sat by the Rhone, and walked up the river to Foch.  

Sunday we went to Geneva for church and lunch with the Kees.

Monday and Tuesday we stayed in Meyzieu.  Doug helped Arlin in the yard, I helped Pamela cook, and we tried to stay cool in the VERY hot weather.

Wednesday we went to Cassis for two nights.  We went to the beach, ate by the port, hiked to one of the Calanques, rode the tourist train, and just enjoyed the sunny, warm (but not too warm) weather.

Today is Fête de la Musique, but we are too tired to go into Lyon.  We took a stroll around Meyzieu to the concert in the town center, and enjoyed the cool weather.  

Only one more week... still lots of things we want to do!

Park and Grand Large

This morning we finally felt more rested.  Caroline had a pretty good night.  She still woke up from about 9:30-11, but slept the rest of the night.  I went for a run before she woke up and Doug did some work.  After breakfast (bread from the local bakery), we went into Lyon to go to the park.  We made a quick stop at the corner bakery for some snacks.  Caroline fell asleep while we strolled, and we found a nice shady bench to park for a while and read.  We met the Hendrixes for lunch at one of their favorite local restaurants- Au Grand Large, and had a relaxing evening at the house.

Dining à la terrasse

Beautiful weather!

Travel to Lyon

For the most part, we had a happy traveler.  Caroline didn't sleep nearly as much as we thought she would, so we were (and still are) pretty tired.  As soon as we arrived in Lyon, we headed to church for worship and potluck.  Everyone was excited to see her!

Day 3 in Lyon

Today has been another relaxing day at the Hendrix house.  We went for a little walk this morning, Doug picked cherries and I picked strawberries during Caroline's nap, and Doug took Caroline around the yard while I helped Pamela make lunch.
