An overview of the various messages we posted on social media in November 2018. Have fun.
4 november 2018, DIY and DIY and some more DIY in November 2018
This week still very nice weather, so we did some DIY and DIY and some more DIY😉 Our hedge around our parking had grown a meter in some places since April, but now looks everywhere (thanks to some help) nice and tidy again. We have been to the hardware store in Nantes and also “tiles” slowly appear on the terrace near our swimming pool.
The photos for our photo contest start to trickle in more and more. Soon an overview. This years customers send in their photo until December 31st, 2018 … ..We are now rolling up our sleeves and are putting on our work clothes again and we’ll stall today all the wooden garden furniture inside in our summer kitchen.
8 November 2018, petition for the improvement of the cycle paths
We hope you want to sign the petition for the improvement of the cycle paths between Beauvoir-sur-Mer and Barre-de-Monts. Thank you very much for the effort!
11 November 2018
Tonight, film night in front of our fireplace at Au Passage du Gois. We will watch the comedy “Intouchables” (a French film from 2011). The film tells the true story of a completely paralyzed aristocrat (played by François Cluzet) who builds up a friendship with his caregiver (played by Omar Sy) . The film is based on the autobiographical book Le Second Souffle by Philippe Pozzo di Borgo.
17 November 2018, Full action mid-November 2018 at Au Passage du Gois
We managed to squeeze all our wooden garden furniture in our summer kitchen. We are sitting nice and warm inside, because friend and colleague Jean helped this week with the installation of a total of 5 new heaters in le Sable, La Maree and la Plage. There is also a new gate, so our entrance looks nice and tight again! Also serious occasions in our area. November 11, the 100th anniversary of the end of the first World War and today of course strikes all over France. In our village we only saw some people with a yellow waistcoat on their dashboard, but in Challans (20 km) it is completely blocked today. We thus do unfortunately not have any guests this weekend but therefore we use this weekend to prune in the garden etc without the risk of bothering anyone.
30 November 2018, Alexandre Couillon
Alexandre Couillon, the chef of the restaurant la Marine on the island of Noirmoutier, which is on our coast, is since this week part of the top 10 of best chefs in the world, according to an election among international chefs. Of course we do not post a boring newspaper article about this, but a film from someone who has put his entire menu that he / she ate in the restaurant on Youtube. Looks delicious and mostly with products from our area. What do you think, fancy eating there??
