This is a continuation of my photo-vomit from my first few weeks here in France.
We visited another city on the English Channel, called Dieppe. We lucked out and for once the skies were free of clouds and the air was warm.
Myself and a few other of the students (our country stay families live near each other, so we go on a lot of day trips as a group) buried one of my host brothers in the pebbles on the beach!
My host family :)
A really awesome dog on the pier.
These poor starfish wash up onto the walls after massive wave surges. But they're still pretty gnarly to photograph.
As I mentioned, in this region there is no shortage of churches. The one in Dieppe, however, had particularly stunning stained glass.
And at the end of last week, France had a unseasonable heat wave (I think it was similar in the U.S.?)! Luckily, one of the girls' host grandparents' invited us to lounge at their divine pool. They own a breathtaking
farm that has fields of sheep and orchards for cider.
That weekend, there was a party at the farm-estate that originally was going to be a camp out in the sheep field (HA), but then this storm rolled in..
Though not to worry, we moved inside and worked things out.
Pine cone barbeque. What?
And then last Sunday, Cuy St Fiacre had a the annual village festival. One of my host mom's friends' had me sit with the Medieval warriors..
...and ride a donkey. Minus a saddle. In a race.
OH, only in la campagne (countryside in French).
Merci tellement for checking in and reading up! I'll try to check up on everyone else's blogs as well.
