Day 8 – Bordeaux

Posted on July 4, 2017

Why not? Is your life!

Today started like the others here – a nice relaxing morning before getting ready to head out. We first drove to a nearby winery for a tour of the property and to learn about their process. The property is about 200 acres.

After that, we took a scenic drive around some other local vineyards and chateaus, before heading home to have some lunch and a rest.

At about 4pm, we headed back out, this time driving to a nearby village called Saint Emilion, which is very old and authentically French. We walked around in the 33 degree heat, exploring the small town and looking at the surrounding countryside.

Then it was back home for a nice dinner outside, as the sun began to set (about 9:30pm). I decided to take a few photos and videos as the sun set, and try some timelapse and long exposure photography. I had mixed results. Unfortunately the only ND filter I had was a ND8, which wasn’t enough for what I wanted, but I got a couple of decent shots.

Tomorrow we actually drive into Bordeaux to spend the day.
