A Little Break...

With the Monaco move stillllll underway and the summer in full "go", we decided to take a week in the "country."  Seems that's what the French do, so why not get on the bandwagon.

We chose a house only if it had a pool for the family to lounge around and a big yard for the kids and Charlie to run about in.  Didn't really matter what the area had in store coz we didn't plan on doing any site-seeing.

We stocked the car with BBQ foods and wine, grabbed Grandpa, and off we drove for two hours to a town called Boucle Bel Air.  Not really the country, but close enough.  A week of pool side lounging and relaxation.....

There in the distance is Mont Sainte-Victoire, outside
of Marseille, that appears in a bunch of  Cezanne paintings.


A week of no leash and "yard patrole" duty.  Charlie was in doggie heaven! 
The house's mascot.  He wouldn't leave his post.  He flew around our heads
and landed back on this branch to stare us down a bit before doing
it again, and again, and again...Funny little guy.  

Even got Grandpa to play a bit of football...

Aaahhhhh, now I get what the fuss is all about.  This is definitely a habit worth forming!!!  Already planning the next "house holiday"!
