So after being totally amused by driving through Condom, we carried on to Bordeaux.  We booked this B&B L'Echoppe des Bouilles in the suburbs.  Oh what a gem it was.  Only 3 rooms and the place was newly renovated.  We had secure private parking off site, just a short walk and the following day, even though we had to check out, she allowed us to leave the car in the parking garage till we were ready to leave.  So accommodating and kind.  Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos of where we stayed. 
Bordeaux was so busy, lots of people all over.  I have learned that Bordeaux doesn't have a tourist season.....because it's best known for fine wines, it's tourist season 365 days of the year. 

Bordeaux!!  We made it!

Wine City.  This is a museum of wine from the beginning of time.  It was so very interesting and after, we took an elevator to the top where we were given a glass of wine.  Such an odd building, so new and modern against the very old architecture of Bordeaux.
After his glass of wine, we went out on this open air balcony.  Too cold!

Great grafitti!


Some of these buildings though...... love the brickwork.

Tiny ally ways and amazing wrought iron balconies and windows and doors, oh my!

Santa loves to hand out in France long after he should.

Unicorns guarding a toy shop.

Love some of the old doors in France.
