Empty Chairs At Empty Tables........

~  Repas Non-Stop  ~
This little 24/7 café on Rue des Petits-Carreaux was usually
packed with locals and tourists sipping coffee and chatting
but on passing late one evening we found only
"Empty chairs at empty tables"

Les Parisiens .....

~  On the steps of Le Petite Palais  Paris  ~

Soaking up the midday sun while reading a little Voltaire- Flaubert
or possibly my favourite .... Alexandre Dumas' Count of Monte Christo.

Souillac ......

Mint green shutters and hanging baskets
adorn the façade of this wonderful old medieval building
in the beautiful Aquitaine region of South-West France.

La Roque-Gageac ......

~  La Roque-Gageac  ~
A rainy day didn't spoil our day in this
quaint French rural village nestled along the cliff face
with it's wonderful old troglodyte homes
It's like stepping back in time.
