Every year (the 3rd thursday in November) the world shows up in Beaujolais to taste the New Wine. Here is a link the the festival if you are looking for an adventure. Click on the Photo-to see full screen.
My wife and I showed up for lunch here early, and they informed us that we could wait at the bar. The entire staff then sat down and had a nice family lunch together. I think it was extremely cool that they took the time to eat together and talk before getting the day started. Later on that night I spent some time walking the streets and got this shot. French villages at night can have quite a magical feel to them.
I was walking through the vineyards in Beaujolais France, and met a dog I think was a Portuguese Lab. He was runing through the vineyards early in the morning and had just jumped into a huge mud puddle. When I tried taking his photo, he played hard to get. He ran off every time I pulled the camera out. I finally noticed when I started walking away he would chase me, and managed to trick him into this photo!
