Hi people of the world!

I had an EPIC week-end !!

First, on saturday, the "Patrouille de France", they are the best pilots in France, did a show.
There were parachuters. Then there was a show with fast planes. We watched it from the beach, it was EPIC !

The colour of the French flag : bleu, blanc, rouge.

Today, Sunday, we went to the festival of the "Corniche". It's a road between Ciboure and Hendaye, near the sea. They closed it, so only people walking or cycling could go on it. It's about 10km long. And we went cycling. There were a lot of activities and shows such as : 

Capoeira - it's dancing that looks like fighting, it's from Brazil.

Traditional Basque dancing.

Some big sculptures along the way : 

There were a lot of stands that were talking about protecting the environement

We learned about the different pollution we found in the sea : 

There were some horses and carriages to carry people on wheelchair.
The blondy horses are called Pottok (pronounce pottiok). They are short and very strong. 

We went to the beach after the cycling. Sean is a common name here too. It's spelt XON.
The X are pronounced SH.

Hiiiiiiii people of the world.

WE went to a place  called Espelette, it is chilly heaven !!

The walls that you see at the end of the photo are walls that are built for the waves to crash on so  that in the bay the water is calm (I think it is to avoid surfers) but my mum told me that it is to avoid the town of Saint Jean de Luz to be flooded in the winter.

On the right of the below picture, you can see the wavy side of the digue. They put cement block so the waves don't come crushing directly on the wall as it would prematurely deteriorate the wall. They add new cement blocks several times a year.

The EPIC walk

Hi everybody,
We went fora walk in Spain. It was a bit scary because at the start we heard gun shots. You can see a hole there.

And we went for a refreshing dip but we didn't stay long because these little monsters got invited

 The place is lovely and looks like Ireland except it has a large sun and blue sky !! We walked up and downs for 3 hours.

As a reward, I got an XXL ice cream !

Happy week-end !!

In the school yard we've learned to play Pelote Basque with our hands and a tennis ball. There are many ways to play the Pelote Basque.

For the first time in my life, I saw a moon rising over the mountains.

We went to play tennis but it was so hot that we couldn't play.

By the way, we have now open the blog for comments, so do not hesitate to write to us, we'd love to hear your comments !

We live at the top of a hill. It's quite hard to go up. We're going up the hill twice a day during the week as we come back home for lunch.

We are in the foothill of the Pyrénées. Here's the view from our school yard.

Elodie was our Au pair in Ireland when we were 2 years old. She kept in touch with us. Since she lives 2 hours away, she came to visit us.

Ciboure is a very old town. This is on the way to school.

On Sunday, there is a market in Ciboure.
