We had been moving so fast, we hadn’t had time to really enjoy our hotel, except for a few minutes before dinner here and there. After our visit to Chateau Haut Bailly, we were pleased to spend the rest of the day today exploring at our hotel, the beautiful Les Sources de Caudalie, which had been highly recommended by many people. Located among the vineyards at Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte, it was a perfect respite from all the running around we had been doing.
We enjoyed a light lunch on the terrace, watching the ducks in the pond, and then took a walk around the property, before enjoying a glorious massage at the namesake spa.
Post-rubdown, we luxuriated in the sun by the pool. Bob ran back to the room to grab some wine – and came back with a split of Krug! Of course. For once he didn’t manage to smuggle it over in his luggage – he actually managed to purchase it back when we were in Bages, and chill it in our room, all without me noticing. This is one of his favorite tricks.
All said and done, I have to say, I much prefer the Krug trick to the one he played next. We realized our afternoon in the sun had to come to a close, because we had a late afternoon appointment on the property to tour the Ch. Smith Haut Lafitte winery. Upon arriving back at the room, however, we were missing Bob’s room key. Where could it be? A frantic search ensued, as we were already running a wee bit late.
Can you guess where we found it? In his spa robe pocket, retrieved by the maids after it had traveled down the laundry chute! Mystery solved, we cleaned up as best we could and ran, breathless to our next appointment…which turned out to be another fun adventure!
