Much practice was required to get our eye makeup just right. Here was the result of the first days efforts!
Mid afternoon on Friday Claire and I left Beaulieu for the final time (well for me anyway). Arrived in Villeneuve in time for an apperitif before dinner at Christian & Geraldine's place. Met up with Remi and Veronique and most of Remi's immediate family, including a few aunts and uncles. A mere 22 of us for dinner that night!
We stayed in a mobile home at the camping ground, which was also where the Party was being held. Five of us in a mobile home was quite cosy but we managed remarkably well.
Luckily we had lovely sunny, warm weather so we were able to sit outside at the table and loungers.
Unfortunately, my rubbish sleeping habits, combined with a very narrow hard bed meant that I did not sleep very well at all! So while Claire, Remi and Vero walked the 6km back to G & C's for lunch on Saturday I instead relaxed and drove down an hour or so later. Our fifth friend, Jacques, joined us in the afternoon.
Party started at 7pm, so our preparations started at 5pm! Here are the results.
We had a fantastic night! Four course meal, lots of wine followed by a coffee and then a choice of digestif either Mirabelle or Angelica. Then dancing until the wee hours of the morning!
