Two days ago I mentioned the surprise I had for the group. It was a dinner and light show on the lake. Here are some pictures of the incredible event:
Here is the picture of the boat during the day. We went on the boat at night.
Here is a picture of Lupe and Laurie at dinner on the boat:
Below are Carol and Cathy on the deck watching the show (well, laughing first!!!):
The cliffs of the wild coast of the Bourget Lake were lit up by the boat to give an amazing show. Everything in music….Just sensational!
Today, we went to see a chocolate maker in La Cote St Andre in the Isere department of France. Pierre Jouvenal created the first chocolate museum in France, in 1996.
He explained everything about the history of chocolate, the biology of the cocoa tree, the difference between bad and good chocolate made of 100% cocoa butter.
Kaye and Susan bought candies made out of white chocolate and strawberry, the new specialty from the chocolate maker. Susan bought so much chocolate that Pierre asked her if she was going to open a store in the US!!!
Here is our group with Pierre:
But where is Lupe? She is not here? She was still inside the shop and Pierre has already locked the door of the museum, ready to go home. Luckily, Laurie, her roommate on the trip, noticed that Lupe was missing. I guess, it could be worse than being locked in a chocolate store….
