Greetings from France by Céline Hallas

I just wanted to send a little greeting from the way, way to hot France.
We are spending the days inside and only daring to go outside after 7pm - in all the years we have come here it has never been so hot for so long. 

In the few hours we have for fun, between 7pm and sundown, we have gone to the beach, Sammie have been skating and we had our hottest Sunday stroll to date - only once have we been to the Town Hall Square and that was only to get some ice-cream. I wish I had more to tell but that is about it! We just sleep a lot and eat a lot of melons and drink water.

Here's some shots from the first week here!
All edited in VSCOcam because I don't have the energy to side at the computer - it's just to hot ;)

Sunday stroll #29 - Fréjus by Céline Hallas

On a way to hot day in Fréjus, France - we waited for the clock to turn 7pm before going out for a Sunday stroll, but even though the sun was going down, the heat was still overwhelming.

We just wanted to go for a walk just outside town, so it wasn't a long walk. We have walk this trail many times befor - but it leads to a lawn where you can look out over the city as the sun sets behind the mountains and therefore a favorite destination.

The kids were fighting and hugging the hole way as only siblings can. 

We found blackberry bushes and pomegranates and almond trees at the lawn and the kids had  fun trying to open the almonds. While the sun was setting we sat on the lawn and just relaxed - and we didn't return home before the dark was complet.
