Fête du fleuve

So Monday being my day off we decided to go on a jaunt into Bordeaux.

It's the Fête du Fleuve (festival of the river) when tall ships visit and a single-handed yacht race is due to start later in the week. We took the bus and tram to Stalingrad just the other side of the rivera and had a slap-up lunch in a transport caff, then hopped on the river bus to cross over to the hangars, then a leisurely walk past all the closed shops (closed on Mondays) before scuttling back to Pessac via the hypermarket.

We know how to live, us !
