A Chip off the old Block…

Now that Charlotte is great at riding her big multi-speed bike, one of her favorite things to do is go off on excursions with Franck through the forests and vineyards. Franck always takes his camera (and, as you can see from the previous blog, he makes pretty darn good use of it too). We bought a small digital camera for Charlotte’s Birthday present, so she takes hers too.

I’m amazed at some of the photos she brings back with her. For a seven year old, she has a fine eye – not that I’m biased or anything…

Here are some pics from this weekend’s foray.

Here are some friendly donkeys who let you pat them without biting and spitting, who graze in a little field in the vineyards just by La Maison de la Vieille Vigne.

Then they stopped by Franck’s Dad’s (Andre’s) huge and prolific vegetable garden, and admired how the squashes and pumpkins are coming along.

Then they stopped by a sunflower field.

And, last but not least, they stopped off to take photos of a field of wildflowers that caught their eye.
