French Word(s) of the Day: juste nos quatre (juice-st no cat-rah)- just us four
Sam leads a tour through through Claude Monet’s home in Giverny. We were in luck; the week we were in France was one of the last weeks that the garden was open. It closed shortly after our visit for the winter.
I’ve discussed how much I love Monet. Sam is also aware of this fact. The last time I’d been at Giverny, there had been people all over the place and on all the bridges. I was a little worried they were going to collapse. I’d told him how sad I wasn’t that I hadn’t been able to take people-less pictures.
Sam’s tour gets in before the gardens open to the public. He led his group to the house for their special tour (with another guide) and then snuck us into the gardens. The four of us got to be there without anyone else for several minutes, and Sam said, “Happy birthday, Meghan!”
Happy birthday, indeed!
As today is my actual birthday, I think it’s the perfect time to share all my beautiful photos.
