This is Bérnard’s parents’ house in Auvillars. We stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights.
Here are Bérnard’s parents. Among many things, M Bertail told us about his family being displaced from their house by the Nazis when he was 14 (a different house than the one in the photo above).
Chloe* and Ella outside the Bertail house.
Christine, explaining herself. Again.
Bérnard took us to a farm where Calvados, an apple brandy from Normandy, is made. This man gave us a tour and tastes. I’m bringing home a 10 year-old bottle courtesy of Bérnard!
Celeste, Melinda, Ella & Chloe* attempt a volleyball game in the Bertail backyard.
This is a close-up of the Bertail mailbox. I think the handwritten name is charming.
Bérnard’s sister, front and center, was also visiting.
