Hier we went to Hyeres (that is just fun to say), a gorgeous town on the Cote d'Azur. It is only about 15 minutes from our house so a nice little afternoon jaunt. Phin had fallen asleep so M took a nap with him in a parking lot while the kids and I set off for destinations unknown. We stopped at an information office and picked up a map then started walking up a hill.
::We found Edith Wharton's house Castel Sainte-Claire (thou shalt not envy wonderful author who lived in villa in the south of France) and were so disappointed that it had been turned into horrid little offices. I wanted to gape and gawk at her life a little bit.
::got a little lost
