My husband's favorite city in France is Montpellier.
There was actually a time at the beginning when we were going almost every other weekend. This is quite a feat considering that we live almost 3 1/2 hours away.
While we were in Sete, Cornel couldn't resist being so close to Montpellier and not stopping by.
I was less than thrilled. We had a long drive back home and a detour was not in my plans.
The thing about Cornel is that he rarely ever complains when I want to go somewhere so I had to take one for the team and go to Montpellier.
I have to admit that the town and the surrounding area is beautiful. The beach is nearby and the town itself is the perfect mix of old and modern.
I was kind of sentimental and wanted to share the places Cornel and I loved so much with our boys.
The wind was cold and the water was rough, but this didn't stop Nathan from enjoying the Mediterranean. I imagine this is what pure joy feels like in life.
Little did Nathan realize that the day was not over. We decided to indulge his obsession and take him to a Pirate Restaurant.
Nathan loved every single minute of it.
We ended our wonderful afternoon with a trip to the Aquarium right across from the Pirates. Both Nathan and Noah loved staring at the fish (what is it with fish?).
We ended up getting home much later than I thought we would but it was all well worth it.
Sometimes the detours make the most memories.
Do you have any memorable detours?
