Day 6

Can you believe? We barely had time to shop! We finally made it a priority and made the rounds on our last day. I bought a scarf here and there, but really had success in one particular shop, Passage de la Cadene. I loved these colored glasses!

Jean Lagru.

I had never seen these before.. Somehow these paintings were used to make tapestries. They are old and have a wonderful worn look. The shop had dozens of them rolled up. I got this one and need to get it framed... I wish I would have taken photos of the framed ones in the shop. They were beautifully matted and would have been a good reference when I start that process.

Other finds in the shop...

Between shopping, we drove to Bordeaux for a few hours... in the pouring rain! We ended up spending hours in a cafe for lunch and not enough hours shopping!

The architecture of Bordeaux is magnificent...

The end of our trip was highlighted by a delicious meal prepared by the private chef. We magically pulled up the Nebraska football game on my laptop and watched the 2:30pm Nebraska game at 7:30pm in France! We celebrated our victory just after midnight, and took what can only be classified as a short nap, before our car picked us up at 4am for the airport. What a way to end the vacation ~ celebrating a Husker win with longtime Nebraska friends in St. Emilion!
