E & me {la plage}

 Last week in E & me we got all summery at the sidewalk café.

This week? 
Allons à la plage !


Our beaches are quite similar, n'est-ce pas?
Sand, beautiful blue water, mountains in the background.

I think the main difference can be measured in degrees.

As you can see in Erin's photo,
the Pacific Ocean is lovely. 
Lovely but {as I know from experience} freezing cold.

As for the Lac d'Annecy, it's not exactly warm,
but you know what?

Yesterday it was 35 degrees Celsius here.  
Too.  Darn.  Hot.

After a very long day of teaching 
very sluggish students 
in my very hot classroom,
I couldn't wait to get into that cool clear water.

Which is exactly what I did about 2.5 seconds
after snapping this photo.

  1. 35 degrees really is too darn hot. I remember a few days like that last summer. And I'll never forget flying into Lyon on a hot August evening. The pilot announced that it was 38 degrees celsius! Whew, that's hot.

    Right now I'd be really happy with something around the 25-28 degree mark. And a nice long stretch of sunshine would make me happy too!

    Thanks for listening to me vent today. I promise to be more cheerful and less stressed out next phone date. I will be enjoying les vacances, after all...

    Love you and hope you have another chance very soon to dip your toes in that gorgeous lake!
    xoxo
