After an 8 hour flight to Munich, Germany, 2 high speed trains and a car ride later, I arrived on the Île de Ré. This is a wonderful island on the West coast of France, a vacation spot I very much enjoyed along with my boyfriend Matthieu for 10 days before we start our new jobs back in Munich. After a few days of rain, the sun shone bright, hot and full, bringing with it many end of summer colours and seascapes. I had a wondrous time in the sun, photographing and tasting fresh creatures from the sea. Matthieu was especially excited as the ocean treated him well and he was able to surf. Photo credit to Matt for the great portrait he took of me seen below. Take Care and Enjoy !
