So much to do, so little time …

If it’s Friday, it must be France …

Bienvenue juillet! July … here so soon! So many photos and so little time to organize them.

Setting aside the Promenade and the Med for now, I’m fascinated by the details of the splendid Bourgeois, Belle Epoche and Art Deco architecture in Nice. Strolling around each day, never fails to bring a new discovery.

And then there was a day in intriguing medieval Entrevaux … another peek … If you recall, that’s the town where I set the beginning of Book 2, Promises To Keep. After my husband and I accidentally visited there, I couldn’t take this village out of my mind. I just had to write about it. It was great fun to go back this past week with friends and find it has not lost its mystique.


And I haven’t given you a peek from Antibes yet, but I’ve got to get back to writing! Next week, Antibes.

I’ve realized I should put all the photos into their own albums or slideshows and then make them available for those who want to see them. Another project! Are you finding your summer is filled with projects too?

    Lovely, as always… It makes me feel I am there too, and for this, I thank you and hug you! I am here at home, as always now…

      Martha, sometimes taking an armchair vacation is the best. Enjoy and be as well as you can be. Sending bises!

  3. Splendid photos! When we are all old and grey, we can amuse ourselves and relive the old days by organising those albums!

      Thanks, Margaret. Something has changed with my website provider though and my photos are not loading as they should. So now I have to figure out what that’s all about. Good advice about organizing our albums anon!
      Happy summer!

  4. As always, great photos. Miss you.

  5. I also have so many projects this summer. No chance of getting bored. Love your photos. Happy writing. Xo

  6. All the little streets and alleyways look so clean. Is the entire village that way? Both places look so fabulous.

    Thanks for sharing.

      France is an impressively clean country. Posted a photo of the brooms on FB. I am fascinated by them. 🙂

  7. I finally got to read this …too many projects!! So love your photography. The pictures are so clear. Can’t wait to see these pictures in “real”. When I am there with you in September. Curious to know what kind of camera you use?

    • Patricia Sands says

      Liane, well it took me a while to get to the comments, so I hear you! You will see all this and more in September. I can’t wait either! I use my beloved Canon Rebel XT, which is about 12 years old and heavy. I just can’t say goodbye to it though. However, I must admit that more and more I am simply using my iPhone as the quality is so surprisingly good … and it fits in my pocket! See you soon!

I love hearing from you ~ thanks for stopping by
