A few days before leaving France, Aaron, Sophie and I went to Uzès for the last time. I wanted to pick up some fabric and a few other odds and ends before heading back to the States. We casually walked around and I tried to soak it all in, knowing it would be awhile before visiting Uzès again. I found the things I wanted and then we found Antoines’ partners boulangerie. It was right in the heart of the centre ville and, of course, we had to try some pastries. Bien sûr! The presentation was so pretty and it wasn’t bad on the taste buds. It was another lovely afternoon in Uzès!
Last weekend Elias, Aurore, Aaron and I went into Uzès for dinner. Elias drove his car and he found a parking spot along the Boulevard Gambetta and we were set to go eat. After a few hours of a fun and yummy dinner we came upon Elias’s car and two other cars parked in front and back of his car. Each one was COVERED in pigeon poop! The people sitting at the adjacent cafe were all laughing as we were looking at the three cars, specifically Elias’. We could not believe the amount of poop. There were even pigeon feathers stuck to the car. We were laughing so hard. As we were pulling out of the parking spot, a family passing by was pointing at our car with disbelief and disgusted looks upon their faces, followed by laughter! It looked like a war zone of pigeon poop, feathers, and tree branches!
These photos do not do the scenario justice! We quickly found a car wash at 11:30 pm so the poop would not start “eating away” at the paint on the car. When we arrived there was another man in the next car wash stall washing his car because of the same problem! We all about died of laughter!
Aaron and I love Uzès and we love to spend the evening dining out in this beautiful village. A few weeks ago we strolled along the quaint streets before finding a delicious Thai restaurant. We are trying to fit in as many leisurely strolls as we can with the time we have left. Oh, how I will miss Uzès!
