"I am a thought, that enters into every fragment of reality,
I am every emotion known by the world of time,
I am all the questions asked by a four yrs old,
I am the water and the fire,
I am the earth and the air,

I am life at its present form, just a moment of the Endless Worldwide Story,

I am happiness and sadness,
I am kindness and...
I am peace and war,
I am Contraddiction in its purest form,

I am simply
a woman's soul."

I started off by saying that a project like this one would not have interested me as I did not wish to have to take one photo per day....well....the proof is that I am here! Am looking forward to this year 2007, and one thing is sure, I will try to make it as good as possible! (just changed the photo....an "unpublished" one just for this diary!!!)

Any advise, any comments....well, just feel free! ;-)

23rd - departure day for the Girlies weekend at the Sea!

23rd February - Sea.....here we come!!! Girlies W/E out..

So I arranged to go with two girl friends at the seaside, and in particular to an island which has remained in my heart since I got to know it...Oleron Island. Here it is, the two of us waiting for the third friend and the car, in order to leave and to do the 6 hours journey....
Arrived at our seafront hotel just in time to get changed and have an aperitif, relax and then go out to dinner.....we found a little restaurant (l'Assiette du Capitaine), really nice, 10mins walk from the hotel, the owner was really nice and he took pleasure in explaining us its way of cooking, its choices and one of his passions: kyte-surfing....I think the girls, and me, were really interested by this, it could well be that we will go back in the summer to try and learn this....returning to the hotel seemed much longer though, as it started pouring down with rain - results: we got completely drenched from top of the head to end of toes....and entering in the hotel we could not stop laughing at each other.....a great day!

Ah, kite surfing is awesome! I've got a friend who's really into it, and she taught me a little last April. You should definitely give it a go!

@ Fil: I think we'll try our best to go back there this summer and give it a go....even though I was very clear about the fact that I am no wonderwoman, and I am no fish too....i can swim, that is of no problem but....but.... i do not want to drink any sea water.....is there a technique not to do that in kyte-surfing??? mmmmhhh I need to find one....

24th February

Green Wood Walking

After a good breakfast, not too late either, we started the tour of the island - I had to show this jewel to my friends, it was their first time over there.... so we started off with one of the most beautiful beaches - Vertbois - we parked the car, we went to the beach...and this is the scenary we got just in front of us....absolutely fantastic, even if the weather was still lousy.....we then went from beach to beach and on the way back to the hotel we stopped at a couple of producers of Pineau - the local aperitif - cooked wine ( like Porto is for example) but fortified with Cognac....and of course we did the tasting! After it was time for a siesta in our cold hotel room - yes, barely no heating in the room forced us to ask for an electric radiator, which we got at the end of the siesta, but hey...the room was nice and warm for the night!
Dinner was at the same little restaurant - only this time we decided to take a digestive - arranged rums! Mine had been aromatised with chilli and ginger.......absolutely tasty!

25th February - Market at Le Chateau...

United Colours

...and very elegant lunch in a gourmet restaurant....our way to say goodbye to this island of Light. The market had been shrunk because of road works, however it was good to see all the fresh seafood available and the we just wandered around waiting for the lunch time to arrive....this is one of the places we stopped and sat down and contemplate for a while...
After lunch it was time to hit the road to come back to Paris....we were all tired, and I personally would have loved to spend a little more time over there, but.....hey....I will go back!

PS: Important note.....this is the morning when we were in the car, but going very very slowly in a small road towards Le Chateau....and we saw, at max 5m away a wild boar.....my very first time!!! I was really excited and could not believe my eyes!

Week-end in Oléron... Very good. I haven't been back there since my army days, and that was just a quick visit, in passing. I stayed there for a month in "colonies de vacances", holiday camp when I was a kid.

Your photos made me want to go back for a visit.

Maybe next year, or the following...
Italian Papillon 11 years ago
Parascuba....surely you do not live that far away from Oleron???? I got to know very well this Island 3 yrs ago....I spent all weekend ( all long ones) for 9 months going back there....and now I can not live without it!
CollardGreens PRO 11 years ago
I note well this island...seems like a very nice place to visit...I agree with you that to shout you have to open your mouth - even if it means a bit of ocean water ! Very Nice photos here...

CollardGreens: Oops!
Italian Papillon Posted 11 years ago. Edited by Italian Papillon (member) 11 years ago
@ CollardGreens: Yes, absolutely, I would recommend this place to anybody.....however....try not to go there during the second half of july or august....it is absolutely packed jammed with people....and that makes it not so pleasant.....Thank you for passing by!

Italian Papillon 11 years ago
Thank you so much eelend!!!!

However, I think my journey with this diary ends here..... I have cumulated a lot of delay in posting photos, that I can not keep up any longer, and I know I have missed certain days anyway.....it is a very interesting project, and I'd love to have the means of keeping it up, however I know also that I could not.....I have started some activity during the day, and it will not allow me to take photos or to post them during the day.....sorry...

For anybody interested, well they can keep up with what I am doing in my normal flickr page, and would be ver very happy to receive any of your comments.

Keep it up guys and girls...I couldn't...for this year, but maybe next?!?!? kisses sabrina x
