Vive la France!

July 14, 2014

Happy Birthday France!!!

Like South Africa’s Human Rights day and Independence Day in the US, France’s Bastille Day reminds us that we should stand up for whatever it is we believe is fair and just, no matter what.

We packed up the family over the weekend and headed for our very first Bastille day experience right here in Franchhoek, SA. It was the valley’s 21st Bastille and as always the weather was nothing less than perfect, the food was Devine and one could no doubt sense the locals’ pride in the air. Everywhere we turned people were walking tall with their blue, white and red and I must admit I felt a little out of place without my beret – definitely getting me one of those for next year’s celebrations!

Loved being French for a day and celebrating their beautiful heritage with my beautiful family!

Here’s some snaps of our day in the gorgeous Franchhoek…
