French Sabbatical

My family's year in France…

Day 59 (28 August 2010) – Saturday Morning

After having had such a fun time last night and having been out a bit late, Melinda and I had a quiet Saturday morning today. We had an errand to run related to finally getting Ella’s cell phone. On that subject, it has taken us since July 10 to get the local provider, Orange, to allow us to have four phones, and that is really thanks to the kind young man, Saad, the same man who helped us way back in July, going to bat for us yesterday afternoon. Anyway, we now have the four phones and this morning Melinda and I went back to the store to set it up so the four of us can have unlimited calls between them.

We arrived a little early so sat down for a pastry and morning drink at a nearby café. Melinda had a pain au raisin (pictured) with a grand café and I had something called a chausson pomme with a chocolat chaud. The weather was picture perfect and the food delightful, giving us one of those “pinch-me” moments. This is the kind of morning we envisioned having when we imagined living in France.

I’m posting early today as we leave soon to head into town to meet up with Laurent & Frédérique and Isabel & Luc (from Pornichet) for Les Rendez-vous de l’Erde, a jazz festival taking place on and along the river in Nantes this weekend. Now that should be fun!
