Summer Trip - Day 34: Bormes-les-Mimosas, France

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010
We had another relaxing morning where I took some time to update my blog, play chess and cards with the kids. 

I then went out with Anya (their youngest daughter), Hamish (her boyfriend who was there for the week) and Dan (the Dad) out intertubing for a bit.  The water was really choppy and it made for a rather bumpy ride and made me sooo sore the next few days.  We then drove the boat over to the property of Carla Bruni’s house (that’s the French President’s wife) where there’s a great rock we can climb up and jump off.  Because of the high-profile residents of the property there is security around the area so we had to sneak up the back side of the rocks and then quickly jump off before the security guards saw us.  It was definitely a lot higher than it looks from down below, and is the highest rock I’ve jumped off in my life (probably).

Today is Bastille day (the French equivalent to the 4th of July) so we went down by the harbor for dinner and then took the boat out to watch the fireworks.  We took the boat to the closest point we were allowed to watch the fireworks from.  They were being shot off about 40 feet away from us and a few exploded right over our head… definitely a fun time.  Us boys then messed around in the water for a bit before heading home for the night.
