At last!!!


...the lappy is working again! :-)))

What a complete pain-in-the-bum was that complete holiday period without the facility to post some lovely piccies...

...but, I'll try to give you a flavour from my living room back home instead.

NORMANDIE

We stayed at a lovely site, on the banks of the Seine, just beneath one of Richard the Lionheart's castles....


...and it was from here that we went to visit Monet's house and garden at Giverny.






On a day with our friends Michel and Zina, we climbed up to the castle above Les Andelys....

...and were rewarded with this magnificent view!

From here we moved on to....

SAVOIE

Lac d'Annecy was our home for a few days....

....overlooking the lake and watching the parachute fun from these spectacular mountains.



Annecy itself was very pretty too...


My first workshops were held at St Symphorien, a few kilometres from the Swiss Border.

We had such great fun (and FOOD!!) for the two days....




a BIG "Thanks" to Renee, Corrinne, Evelyne, Catherine, Anne, Rosy and Josy for a wonderful French "Bienvenue"!!

I'll post the rest in a couple of days....

It's such a beautiful country and...

...sometimes I have to pinch myself...

...just to make sure I'm not dreaming...:-)

Oh how wonderful! I knew you'd have good photo's for us when you get back to your home nest! These were well worth waiting for. Nice to see you back.
