We're back. Whew.
The apt was in one piece. Our cat, Léo is much skinnier. We think that he ate his weeks worth of food in the first two days. He's been a pot de colle (sticky) since we've been back following us everywhere we go, even to the bathroom.
So, how was our first official vacation together? A success!
A few bickers (fights), a few nights where we had too many bowls of cider, lots of crepes and seafood, romantic walks on the beach, dancing with the waves, late night skinny dips, lots of sleeping in late, one lost iPod (his) and no drastic hair cuts. :) Click for photos.
And no thallasso therapy! Unfortunately, the one centre that Julien's grandmother recommended was closed for the summer and the other ones on the island were booked until our last day there. So, alas... no sea therapy for me this time. I did go for numerous dips in the ocean and soak my feet in the pools of algae during the maree basse (low tide). I must admit that a week of swimming in 17°C water does the body good, I feel great. We plan to go back to Belle Isle in February next year, I will definately be booking my sea therapy session in advance.
As much as I loved being away from Paris I am glad to be back. Something about the city I miss, maybe I am becoming a city girl? Who would have thought that this Kansas girl would ever think that? Glad to be back and go back to work... I am okay with this because I know that later this year I will have more vacation waiting to be spent. One week down, 4 more to go! I've definately gotten the hang of this 5 week vacation thing.
