We left the vineyard at 1 o' clock, to go to La Rochelle. In our way there, we visited different sites.

The river La Gironde was very important for the transportation of goods and wine. The little houses were set up by the fishermen who cough a variety of fish.
While in the region of Cognac we bought some Pineaut, a delicious aperitif drink and cognac, bien sure!
We follow the road by the river and found beautiful sites, marinas and cute little markets where we bought our lunch. We pick-nicked at the entrance of a little canal that opens at high tide to allow boat to enter and leave.

We arrived to La Rochelle at 7:20 pm. Our Friend Chantal was very happy to see us, unfortunately Jacques was with his new boat in Port, Portugal, and we couldn't see him on this trip. But our hostess was unbelievably nice. She went way out of her way to entertain us. Of course Aldo, her dog, couldn't be more adorable. We had been planning that trip with them since we met in St. Lucia 2 years ago.
