Things we did

We finished our surf lessons. Here is Killian.

We did a orienteering walk. We had to find a box, there were questions to answer. It was all about basque mythology.  We learned about Laminak, small green creatures like this : 

We went to visit our mum's friend in Saverdun.  
They were friends for a long time. They had twin children at the same time. Her friend had 2 girls. We met when we were babies, at the hospital, as we are born 4 days apart. This is us now : 

We visited Toulouse, our birth city.

We did a long walk in the Pyrénées, near Foix, see map 

We walked to the highest top you can see on the picture. It was great.

We went to the prehistoric museum and parc.

Tools from bones, stones that cave men used to make :

Back home, in Saint Jean de Luz, we went straight to the beach as it is still very warm on Halloween.

Hi sorry that the last time we didn't have photos of us surfing but now we do now.

As you can see it's so cool but it's not easy.

This is Nicolas, our surf teacher. He is very nice.

Guess WHAT we  are MAD about in school  MARBLES.
WE went to a car boot sale today  and we got 1018!!!! marbles

One big difference between France and Ireland is the size of the spiders.
Here is a sneaky one who apparently got invited to our house.

French Market and Waves, of course !!

In France, there are a lot of outdoor markets.
Here are some mushrooms that look like bread.

There is also a lot of vegetables.

But my favourite food is ham and sausages (saucisson in french)

There is a lot of cheese in the basque country, especially cheese from ewe's milk.

A lot of small farms are making cheese. To show that it's real farm cheese, they stamp the cheese with the head of a ewe with a F in the middle, as you can see in the picture below.

And this is the waves at the Socoa digue

I got to practice my Spanish, which I have started learning in school.
