Maybe you don’t know this, but two weeks ago it was Mother’s Day in France. This year, we decided to celebrate it by spending the day on a boat, sailing on a canal that goes through various villages.
The boat was not that big, but it was well equipped, with a table, chairs, a roof, and even some toilets ! ⛴️
Here you can see it with my mother, in her Floral pink dress for the occasion.
We started from a village named Briare (pronounced Bree-ar, with hard French Rrr).
At the beginning, the canal we were on passed on a bridge, that itself crossed a river. Not sure if that sounds very clear, but here are the pictures :
The surroundings were quite nice too, and full of nature, as it is usual around small villages in France.
Also, we saw llamas. Wtf France :
And since we spent the day on it, we had a semi lunch semi picnic on the boat table ! ???But to do so, we needed to moor the boat on one side of the canal, so everyone could eat properly. I was the one who had to jump out and drag the boat to the quay, I mean look a those (inexistant) muscles !
Maybe you’ll recognize it, I made my Gluten Free Goat Cheese and Zucchini Flatbread again for my mother.
I even got to drive the boat too, since it was a license free boat ! Anyone could drive it (but honestly it’s so much harder than it looks).
Call me Captain Oriana ! ⚓️
And as you might’ve already seen on my Shopping Haul #2 Post, I was wearing this Topshop Floral Jumpsuit ! It was very confortable and light to wear, perfect for the occasion ! I was also wearing those silver ballerinas that I love, but I lost them ! I think I might have forgotten them at the gym one day ?
Anyways this was a perfect day !
When we jumped out of the boat it was soooo hot, we decided to go get some ice cream to cool down a bit .
It was a lemon, orange, and grapefruit mix, delicious and refreshing ! Plus : who could resist this chocolate cup.
It was really an amazing experience, I love sailing ! ⛴️
Have you ever been on or sailed a boat ?
