Oh so briefly, Bordeaux

Sadly we only had the best part of a day in Bordeaux before we had to go to the airport. But we tried to make the most of it.

 

Lots of walking along the river, some monuments and churches filled in the time nicely. Along the riverside there were some non-traditional public rose plantings that paired roses with grasses etc, for interesting effects

 

 

The best sight was the so called mirror fountain. Down in front of the Borse the jets periodically create a haze. It is so fine that you can walk among the jets and not really get wet. Then, the water stops and a mirror surface remains.

 

And in a cheeky window display there was a little copyright infringement? All Basques, All Blacks?
