Ile de Ré



 

I try to add some leisure time when I have to drive to antique markets. Last summer when Trinidad came over we took a different route to the south of France where we do the buying for our fall container.
We took the coastal road south till we got to our destination, Ile de Rê, an Island on the west coast of France. Along the Atlantic cost across of La Rochelle. We stayed a few days in Saint Martin de Rê, the capital of the Island. 






The hollyhocks sprout out of every gap in the sidewalks and alleys.

Wat een heerlijke foto's van Ré, wij zijn er 2 jaar geleden geweest en was meteen verliefd op het eiland. Ik heb er mijn blog naar vernoemd en er staan ook foto's van Ré op.

Wat verkoop je mooie spullen en prachtige foto's!

Groetjes Heidi
