Giverny

Nate and I went to Giverny on Monday. Monday happened to be a jour ferié (national holiday) so the place was plein de monde. We took a train from gare Saint-Lazare to Vernon, which took about 40 minutes, and then walked three miles from Vernon to Giverny on a marked pedestrian/bike path which took about an hour and a half. After eating a quick lunch in a restaurant just outside the estate, in we went! I can let the pictures speak for themselves, it was a super hot and sunny day which made everything stand out. It was iris and peony season!

Nate accidentally bumped into me when I was taking this photo, but I think it resulted in a monet-esque picture!

    So very beautiful! I am rather jealous, I did not make it there.
