Hot weather, checkered blankets or folding seats, fresh drinks, homemade treats or crisps,
friendly folk… that was the recipe for a successful Rentrée picnic. This is a key event in the life of ESC members. At the Orangerie Park, beside the lake.
The weather was glorious, blue skies and brilliant sunshine. Fortunately the first people to arrive
had bagged a lovely shady spot under a tree and soon there was a colourful array of rugs under its
The sun obviously incited people to get out and about and we ended up with about thirty ESC
members sitting, lying about and just relaxing on the picnic rugs.
The time passed quickly as we munched our way through our picnics, enjoyed a glass of wine.
Everyone shared summer memories. Whether they had stayed in Strasbourg or gone away there
was lots to talk about and discuss as well as talk about future plans.
It was a very enjoyable event and I look forward to meeting up again in the near future.
