Third times the charm

Clouds were rolling over the mountains this morning when I got up. Apparently there was a big storm overnight, but I slept so well I didnt hear a thing. I cant get enough of the valley I get to look at every day. I probably take at least a picture a day.
We left early this morning for a fieldtrip to Nimes and le Pont du Gard, two places I visited when I was in France when I was 16, but I was excited to go back! Nimes is a city with a lot of Ancient Roman architecture, including this arena and le Maison Caree.
After visiting these two and the Caree d'Art museum, Lara and I went for a walk to le Jardin de la Fontaine and up to the top of the town to le Tour Magna. It wound up being a beautiful day, and we had a very nice walk around Nimes.Once we made it back down the hill we found an area with a lot of cafes to choose from and had a seat. We ordered some Sangria to share, I got lasagna and Lara got Kangaroo! So adventurous, it tasted a lot like steak, pretty good! Our meal was yummy and it ended with chocolate moose, strawberry ice cream, and espresso! After buying some yarn and zippers at a few stores we headed back to the bus and on to the Pont du Gard, my third time there!We waded in the water, like I had done four years prior. A bunch of our group had brought their bathing suits to go swimming in the chilly water, but because we thought it was going to be a rainy day we didnt bring ours.
I decided to sit by the water and crochet, but then got the urge to jump into the river. Lara and I decided to do it, show a little skin, and hop in! It was so fun and it only took three visits to the Pont du Gard for me to finally swim underneath it!
