Sailor Babo, Brip, and Moxy visit Monet’s garden!

Having been so moved by Claude Monet’s giant water lily paintings at the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris, Sailor Babo, Brip, and Moxy decided to run away to the country to see what inspired Monet. First they took the train to Vernon, where they caught the shuttle bus to Giverny.

Across the road from Monet’s garden, Brip found something cute and furry!

Once inside the garden, they made a beeline for the water lily pond.

We recognize that willow tree from Monet’s paintings!

They walked across in Monet’s Japanese-style footbridge and enjoyed the view.

Then they strolled through the flower gardens.

Soon it was time to go back to the bed and breakfast where they explored to the country decor of the peaceful room.

Soon it was time to get a good night’s sleep so they could wake up and head on to their next adventure.

    We were just there in April! It looks like you didn’t have the massive throng of people we encountered. So fun to see all of you enjoying the grounds!

      Cool! I bet it was lovely in April with spring budding. I missed the crowds by only being there the hour before it closed, which wasn’t long enough, but it was nice to be there at a peaceful time.
