|Soon to be Sunflower field - we spotted ONE starting to bloom!|
|such a pretty carousel....it had carriages as well as these lovely horses!|
|Portside at Chateau d'Oleron you can see the Boats laden with the empty nets ready for Moules and Oysters|
|I actually need this in my garden :)|
|Here we are - our place - feels so right being here!|
|finally giving my birthday present the chance to show me what it could do - and I am impressed, I have never had a zoom that could show this much detail on the old Lighthouse!|
|looking up to the top of the Phare (light house)|
|Looking to the sea from the lighthouse - full zoom!|
|a path we have not walked along before - but glad we found it!|
Lots of talking and lots of picture taking and I admit lots of selfies but some days you just have to - that's the memories right there or just that I am really very fussy and it has to be just right! Good job I don't worry about what the hair does though, beyond windblown.....!
|another reason I love it here - the seagulls, I miss them!|
|Grimbergen and Badoit at the port that we favour most on the Island|
I cannot resist a posing seagull and this one was very good - several poses later and I am a happy lady not sure the seagull was - I am sure he expected some sort of payment in food!!
In the end I decided on "Bar" (Sea Bass) served with vegetables (could have had rice as it was part o the plat but that's not for me) It was delish - served with lemons and cooked to perfection on the griddle, the vegetables were courgette and carrot ribbons with tomato - I couldn't have been happier! Rob went for Fish and Chips, the chips were divine (yes I had a couple - how could I not taste tests are obligatory) and the batter was very light and crispy! I even had a very fresh cup of mint tea made for me..... The young waitress was lovely, very attentive and got our English humour - thankfully!! We chose the right place totally to finish off our much deserved few hours off!

Thank you for reading I hope you have enjoyed my "Life through the Lens" photographs - mostly they were taken using the Canon Powershot SX710 HS which I am still finding my way around - I am superly impressed by the 30x zoom and even in the wind it kept a steady photograph which I was happy about!
