Batteries: recharged

I'm still in the Loire Valley for another few days, which means I had the choice of going back to Paris for the weekend or staying in the area. After a quick search online, I found some cheap train tickets for C and a cute B&B and the decision was made - C would come down from Paris and we'd spend the weekend in Noirmoutier.

We really lucked out with the weather - unlike the rest of France, we had blue skies and sunshine. There weren't the highs of 28°C that we'd had earlier in the week, but it was still pretty warm for late September. Warm enough for me to have new tan lines anyways.

It was a fantastic weekend, full of sun, sand, seafood and se....wait a minute, this is a family-friendly blog. We'll just leave it at me feeling relaxed and refreshed after all the driving and long hours of last week. :)

Beautiful (and empty!) beaches
Hunting for lunch
The famous salt fieldsOne of the very delicious dinners we had

That moules et frites looks absolutely wonderful, I'm very jealous mostly because I haven't seen the sea for over a year! Enjoy the rest of your time in the Loire.

There's nothing like breathing salt air to clear your head.

When I read this, I was left scratching my head because when I see "Loire Valley" I think of chateaux. It looks like a beautiful place to spend a few days...especially with warm, sunny weather and very few tourists!
