Shopping, Macaroons, and Everything in Between

In our French Fairyland: Hotel d' Argouges in Bayeaux

On Monet's Japanese Bridge, June 27th

In front of the Sacre Coeur, June 26th

We began today's journey by waiting on Emma and Ellie to grace us with their presence. After a pleasant bus ride, we arrived at Giverny and toured Monet's home and enchanting gardens. Although the weather was scorching (and apparently Monet did not believe in air conditioning), we had a lovely time and bought gifts for our loved ones back home. Today's trivia winners were Dumbledore's Army (Ellie and Emma) and once again, the W's (Lauren and Mary Clare). They were awarded homemade ice cream for their efforts. Our next stop was the history filled town of Rouen where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. We went through the Notre Dame de Rouen and strolled around quaint shops, buying more gifts for our loved ones and this time, ourselves. We snacked on delicious macaroons and Joan of Arc's tears; they were so delicious we became quite emotional ourselves. Then, after many stops along the way, we finally made it to the location where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. Back on the bus, we napped and napped and napped until we finally arrived at the French fairyland of Hotel d'Argouges. After an authentic french dinner, we will bed down early in the town of Bayeaux. We miss you but are having a marvelous time!

À demain et au revoir!
les filles dramatique: Lily Kate, Elizabeth K, Ellie, and Emma
