    Flowers and water lilies

    August 23, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    After the Museum we walked a little further down through the village to the Monet’s house and garden – where we were greeted by a terribly long line – we stood in the queue for a while until I realised that people where queueing to buy tickets which we actually had already – I popped up to the front of the line and asked the lady if we had to line up if we had the ticket already? She waved us away saying we could just go around the corner and go straight in as we had the double ticket – bonus!! We walked back down the road, down a little side alley and straight in! We crossed under the road via a tunnel and came to the famous waterlily filled lake which was in so many of the works (Vert et ses nympheas) complete with the green painted Japanese bridge. After a wander around there we crossed back to the glorious flower filled garden for a further stroll before looking through the house which also contained a lot of art. Sadly, we had to head back to the station on the 2.10 shuttle so we couldn’t linger. However, this did get us back to the station some 25 minutes before our train so we enjoyed a tasty French beer in the sun prior to our train.Read more
