A Day in La Rochelle

This past weekend we, the volunteers took a day trip in La Rochelle. This beautiful city is right next to the atlantic ocean and the sun was kind enough to stay shining all day as we explored all the gems La Rochelle had to offer. Some found a Brocante, the French word for Flea Market, others jumped from cafe to shop looking around, and some enjoyed the beautiful architecture and history of this city. Frances visited the Bunker where the Germans kept submarines during the second world war. Paul went museum hopping and found that the numerous choices could keep him occupied for several more days!

Our lunch consisted of mussels, bread, pasta, salad, more mussels, and more bread! It was a superb meal that kept us energetic throughout the rest of the day. When it was nearing the end of our excursion, everyone met at the boat bus that carried us back to where we parked. We were all sad to leave but the beautiful memories and photos are something we will always cherish.
