Quatorze juillet

While we didn't really do anything special for the 14 juillet I did convince Lionel to go see the fireworks put on by our town on Saturday night (though he absolutely refused to stay for the bal populaire). They did a pretty decent job for a smaller suburb, synchronized to music and everything: 

a few pictures of some of the fireworks we saw on Saturday at a park in our town
Then on Sunday night we went into Bordeaux to see their much bigger and fancier display shot from a barge on La Garonne.

The Pont de Pierre and St. Michel as seen from La Bastide while waiting for the fireworks

 I hope everyone else enjoyed their 14 juillet as well!

  1. I watched the fireworks show in my town from my bedroom window :)

    All the bébés were terrified, though!
