21 July 2019, A wonderful summer! July 2019
Time flies when you are having fun! Our guests (and we too) enjoy everything that is organized around us to the fullest. Ao a nice kite festival and the running competition on the Passage du Gois. We have learned from our mistakes in the past and during the Foulees du Gois we block our own parking. Thanks to the drone of our guest Jorgen, we now also have beautiful pictures of our little paradise from above, as well as from the dyke and sea behind our house. As always, Martine is enjoying cooking with the products of the season for our table d’hote. With the wonderful summer weather we have often eaten in the evenings next to the pool. The tomatoes in the greenhouse are ripe, but otherwise it is a bit quiet this year in our vegetable garden. Our flower garden is a sea of colors. All our new plants have grown well and are already in full bloom. Quite a few yuccas even fell over, as there were so many flowers this year.
28 july 2019, July 2019 super sunny!
We won the first prize this week! Perhaps partly due to the spontaneous “Belgium quiz” from quizmaster Hemko 😉 Our guests sought cooling by the sea and in our swimming pool during the heat. Our garden fortunately withstood the warmth well. The Spanish Marguérites are still smiling at us, our lavender has now been harvested and the butterflies are flying around again. All the tests of table d’hotes dishes this spring were not for nothing. Our guests enjoy, among other things, the blanc limé aperitif, chorizo meatballs, crème de mogettes, lasagne with Vendée ham, gateau nantais, lemon tart and yoghurt ice cream. This week’s table d’hote even ended with coffee / tea on the Passage du Gois because of the fireworks on the island of Noirmoutier.….
