Bordeaux - Sauternes


It is nice and easy to travel by car from the region of Bordeaux to the Pyrenees. The following pictures were shot on a single day.  For so many things done and seen it recalls a sort of Bloom's day... All right ! less intellectual, over a larger distance and in South West France....

I woke up at my cousin's house on the side of the Garonne near Bordeaux

went to the local market for a small coffee watching people

and nice products like these crates of fresh porcini "cèpes"

went to the "cooperative cellar" of Quinsac to buy claret

hit the road and stopped to admire a castle overlooking the river

arrived for lunch in Sauternes

had a nice grilled entrecôte

grilled on vine chunks please !

then shopped for a bit of local delights

dropped a letter at the impressive post office

joined the chateau Yquem

for a few steps

and shoot a few pictures

didn't buy a bottle of the great (expensive) wine (grin)

continued to Bazas

where I searched  a second "entrecôte" for my dinner

I was hooked on "entrecôte" and those of Bazas are famous

and arrived in Salies de Béarn in the late afternoon
