Continuing on with my journey through Bordeaux…
I felt just like Dorothy when we entered Bordeaux City.
How had we been in Bordeaux for 3 days already and I didn’t even have the slightest idea there was more to it than wine?
I mean, look at this place!
Love at first site.
Okay, maybe not that extreme.
But there was something about it that I just loved.
It could be these awesome trains
zooming cruising around town.
I mean how sweet is that?!
Instead of buses and trolleys they have electric rails on the streets!
Or it could’ve been love at first bite?
That, my friends, is a Canelé.
Supposedly they were created due to the large quantities of egg yolks left over from the wineries in Bordeaux. Since egg whites are used in the process of making wine, many egg yolks are left over so it’s perfect for baking up Canelés which are composed mainly of egg yolks and flour.
This shop specialized in Canelés. It kinda had that retro soda shop look going on.
But the inside was full of pretty goodies.
After trying these sweet Bordeaux specialties, we went to try their more savory specialities.
Bordeaux is located near the ocean so they have a ton of fresh seafood.
We ended up at a cute restaurant across the river named Merci where there was an all you can eat seafood buffet.
Everything was super fresh and I’m pretty sure my momma was in seafood heaven.
After lunch it was winery visit time again…
This was one of the prettiest Chateau’s we visited, in my opinion.
It was also harvesting time here as well.
Then it was back indoors for a tasting.
Another neat thing about this particular Chateau was their decorations.
Everything matched and had that orange-y theme going on. Even their toilet paper was orange!
my last day in Bordeaux AND another reason why I love this city!
