Independence day picnic

As usual, we had lots of fun at our Independence Day picnic, delicious cakes, nice gifts, fine weather and friends!
Happy birthday America!

We were at quai des Queyries (Bastide) where the scenery is just charming, but thanks to technology we travelled to the USA as we watched a video of the Hermione arriving in NYC cheered by the crowd.

Gill, our secretary and Concetta our president welcomed the attendees and new comers with a big smile.

People chatting and enjoying themsleves. Bottom-right: our vice-president and consul Toby Wolf who kindly turned up.

Christian was happy to serve drinks to thirsty people. It was recommended to drink as the weather was hot and we did it ;-) (avec modération).
Thanks to Domaine de la Chouette for providing the wine.
Lucky us, this year we were well-covered by the press. Left, Yann, our P.R. talking with a journalist from Sud-Ouest.
