France Revisited


The majestic, snow covered Alps,
the views so green and bright,
the people, the peace, the pastries - 
France, you've been a delight!


Would you believe that first photo
was taken from the veranda of 
our chalet? The first thing I saw
each morning. An Enchanted April
sort of moment.

  28. Magnificent...or should I say magnifique! One word...that's all I've got after 6 years of French in American schools. I do however have a French student in our midst at the moment.

  38. Spectacular photos that brought back nice memories of our visits to this region. It has been way too many years since we have been in the Alps of France. I'm thinking that at least one of the photos (7th) is of Annecy which is a wonderful town. Hope you had a great time, the weather looks like it was perfect.

  44. Amalia, I can comment today, but most of the time I can't, so I will take advantage of it today haha! Your France photos are wonderful. The berry tart looks amazing. I love that little castle surrounded by water. And the alley picture made me smile. There is always something interesting and fun to see in an alley. ; )
