  1. Maggie,

    Another absolutely beautiful post. I have not been to Normandy but went to Provence about 11 years ago. When I get back to Florida I am going to scan some of those photos and see if I can do a "French" collage!

  2. Maggie, Que j'adore la Normandie! J'y suis allée 4 fois et je pense que c'est ma province préférée! J'ai visité Rouen, Honfleur (sigh...), Bayeux, le Mont St. Michel, St. Mère église, et les plages d'embarquements (et beaucoup de petits villages là-bas). Aussi, j'ai fait un stage à Caen. Un grand merci pour toutes les jolies photos! à la prochaine...Linda

  8. I have never been to your lovely country. That is why I enjoy your post so much as you share a part of the world I will never see. Great pictures and thanks for sharing.

  9. Mmmm - you've captured the essence of an early fall day, with the sun, the feeling that a lunch time could really go on for hours - I could even imagine the sound of the carousel.
    You'll be responsible for a sudden surge in visitors to Normandy!

  15. I love lunches like that. I am having a nice long lunch with a friend today.
    We can get only one Pouilly Fume here in B.C. and it is a LAPORTE LES DUCHESSES 2007 for $30.00 Canadian. That is about 19 euros.

    I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  17. Maggie, yes another beautiful post! You share a little bit of France with each new post, and I feel so fortunate. At least I can be there via your lovely photos. Love the carousel and the carriage. Only in France! ~ Still getting rain here....Sarah

  18. More beautiful pictures. I googled the map of Ouistreham to see where it was located. That was not too terribly far from where we stayed last fall (we took the train from Paris to Caen and stayed out in the country near Dozule). Beautiful, beautiful countryside..I would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks for the gorgeous reminder!

  20. Hello Maggie,

    What fantastic photos! I love carousels and that one is gorgeous. On my trip to Washington recently I had the pleasure of seeing one that was built in 1909. I loved the history of it. Looks like you had a wonderful day...thank you for sharing it with us!

  21. Maggie...as a child growing up in England, did you ever think that one day you would be living in France and enjoying a life that most of us can only dream of? You are truly blessed! 3 hrs for lunch???? WOW..

    I love your pics. If I can't be there at least I can enjoy some of it thru your life and your eyes.

    Thanks for sharing! I love it.

  23. Beautiful carousel. I would love to live in France. But then I would have to learn to speak French.

  24. Maggie,
    I love your photos...simply stunning to say the least !
    You left a message for me regarding my brisket...I'm sure it can be done in a slow cooker.
    Let me do a bit of research and I'll type back.
    Thanks for visiting !

  26. Oh, what a lovely day! I would love to be able to have such views here. Today we are having another rainy day so it is back to working on my spare room. I'd rather be outside, but then looking at gorgeous blogs is also fun!
