4th of July

We took the 4th of July off as a holiday because we’ve had many issues with our HR & Payroll departments and it’s just easier to not do anything out of the ordinary or they can’t handle it. So we took the day off.

Most of us decided to check out the Bordeaux region. Several of us really like St. Emilion wine. It’s a smooth red. So we headed to St. Emilion which is east of Bordeaux. The scenery is beautiful – vineyards as far as the eye can see.

St. Emilion is a great medieval town on a hill with beautiful views from the church at the top of the hill. We ate in a square at the base of the church – you can see the white umbrellas.

A few of the guys climbed to the top of the church steeple and I waved at them from the ground. I bought a bottle of St. Emilion Grand Cru. Can’t wait to try it. It was such a great town – little side streets with amazing views when you pop around a corner. These are the places I will miss the most.

What?! No fireworks? :)
It all looks so beautiful, is it all commonplace to you by now?

No, it's still fun to find places like that.
I miss their big fireworks on July 14 - Bastille Day.
