It was our last night on Ile de Ré. We enjoyed the few days on this beautiful island.
Count your blessings and seize the day!
Thanks everyone for the sweet words.
Tomorrow we say goodbye to grandpa.

Never in my life I've seen so many hollyhocks as on Ile de Ré.
Blooming in all possible colors all over the island. So sumptuously!

Summer is in the air, at least in our bathroom.
The gorgeous pastel colored hammam towels are a souvenir from Turkey, we bought them last May.
The bucket is by Natalie Lete.
My toilet bag (with French lesson) might be very useful on vacation.
The pink [beauty room] sign is for a lady from Paris and acted only as a model in our bathroom.

Sunday we enjoyed lunch at Osteria Vicini in Rotterdam.
Vicini is an Italian local restaurant with a 'mercato' full of delights.(where we bought a little bag of Sale Marino al Rosmarino after lunch)
Nice atmosphere, even better food.
(thanks for the great tip Lammie; the pasta and pizza were indeed divine!)
