La Jour de la Bastille

Bastille Day

...also happens to be our wedding anniversary! We made full use of the beautiful weather yesterday by strolling along the beach and dunes at Headlands State Park. The surf was a bit more rough than usual. The crash of the water tumbling small stones into sand filled our ears, the sun warmed our skin and the wind kept us cool. It was almost like being at the ocean. We picked up a pasta machine on the way home and made raviolis filled with fresh peas, ricotta and parmesan for dinner. I sauteed these with crimini mushrooms, sage leaves and shallots in olive oil and butter. I topped this with a little bit of sauteed spinach. We also enjoyed a small salad of mixed greens and beets and washed all of it down with Presecco. Yum.

Here are a few pics from last year, our pivotal trip to Provence. We spent the day in Isle-sur-la Sourge and the evening watching fireworks from our hotel room over-looking the Rhone.
Check out the clarity of La Sourge.
