Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

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

menu-du-jour ........

brasserie - creperie
a pretty seaside village on the west coast of France
where seafood , crepes and galettes
seem to abound on every menu board

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

Pitchers of Rose and Wild Plums .........

  Sarlat   Dordogne France   ~
just a few snippets from one of my favourite areas of La Belle France
Sarlat is a medieval town where you feel like you've stepped back in time
but is jam-packed with the most amazing laneways courtyards
coffee shops and eateries of every description
the wild plum had fallen from an old tree onto the cobbled pathway
and looked so pretty with a few raindrops sitting atop
and of course beautifully locally crafted pitchers
and decorative signage are everywhere to be seen

salt marshes ........

soft ethereal skies over salt-marsh flats
in Normandie France
