Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

bird soaring low over the marshes ......

Mont-St-Michel    Normandie France  ~
"nothing but blue skies from now on"
It's sometimes difficult to take pics of this beautiful area
without the inclusion of hoards of tourists and buses
but by walking back along the marshes and clambering over a rusty fence
I managed this shot with reflections

sunflowers raspberries and a cafe creme .....

Things I love about Paris  ~
sitting in a French café sipping café crème
and munching on one of those delectable raspberry tarts
 watching the world go by
is one of my very favourite things to do

salade compose  ~
a very long lunch in the delightful village

just perfect after rambling around the back-roads of this
delightful area of rural France

slippery slopes ......

wet and steep steps make for a very slippery slope
but never-the -less this wonderful little lane-way
in the medieval village of Beynac France was not to be missed.
Juggling umbrella in one hand and camera in the other
I managed to step my way from Chateau at top
to village at bottom with out any mishaps.
many movies have been filmed in this quaint village
including parts of that lovely movie "Chocolat"

shuttered windows ....


Paris is full of pretty shuttered windows
sometimes freshly painted and draped with climbing roses or wisteria 
 other-times scruffy rusted and battered by the elements
but I love them all

along the back-roads of Montmartre

Windy Day at St-Malo ....

 windy on the beach but beautiful blue skies overhead
I spotted these two cute French enfants having fun
decked out in spray-jackets and galoshes
even though it was blowing a gale
