We left Albi and went to Bordeaux on a fine day.
The train line ran alongside the Canal du Midi for a while...
past some interesting sights……and we finally reached the vineyards of the Bordeaux area.
Once we arrived in Bordeaux it was a short walk to the apartment we were renting.
We were pleased to have a shutter to keep out some of the sun that shone every day we were there.
On our first morning we headed down to see Le Mirroir d'eau.
When we got there we were disappointed to find that there was no water but just as we were thinking it must only be a Summer thing we saw water coming towards us on both sides!
There are some very arty looking seats.
Lots of people sitting on them stayed put with their feet up but this young man took the opportunity to take photographs of his partner.The buildings in the background are government buildings.
As we were walking away I spotted the clouds reflected in this corner. By this time there were a lot more people too!
Bordeaux is beautiful city - I showed you some photos here
We spent quite a long time watching this being created
The skateboarders were only too happy to show off their skills too!
They were in the square outside the Cathedral, which is beautiful..
The original cathedral walls finished where the people are standing.
The Royal entrance from the outside
By this time we were in need of a drink - we called to a community area where there were information leaflets for locals and a cinema as well as a bar.
It's here where I will join Bluebeard and Elizabeth for Tea Stands For Tuesday!
Hubby had gone for……err…a natural break, I was quite surprised when I went into the toilet myself
We went on our way past this amazing display
I realise that my post title is a little over ambitious - I didn't realise I had taken so many photos in Bordeaux so instead of moving on I will remind you that Try It On Tuesday still has another week for the 'Home Sweet Home' theme
My journal page is also for AJJ and my 101 Ways to Keep Warm which is open until the end of the month.
Thank you so much for your support and for visiting today! Chris
