today, monday, is our last day here. we wanted to see one more market before we left, so we went to valras-plage, where the market was today. it wasn’t anything like the one we went to in pezenas…small, not a lot of people selling things, but we found a lovely woman selling small flower purses. so each girl has one now, from france.
we walked down to the beach, and said our good-bye’s. we have made so many wonderful memories throughout these almost 6 weeks. adventure can come in so many ways…like driving a stick shift down some steps and wondering if you’ll have to stay the night in your van the first night you arrive. or backing into a wall. or sitting with friends in an ancient village eating a croissant. or seeing medieval castles. or sharing two bathrooms with nine people(which wasn’t even an issue). or reading french road signs and using a gps that has old maps. or walking into a boulangerie and getting fresh baked baguettes and croissants. or driving through the countryside in france admiring in awe the green covered hills with vineyards. what an amazing trip. i hope and dream and will work and look forward to all the adventures life will bring, and that i will get to do.
