Carol, Victor Hugo, Hunting Museum Yesterday!

 Yesterday was amazingly perfect, hot and sunny. We walked to the Victor Hugo House on Places des Vosges, stopping into chocolate shops and parks....These are sculptures in a studio through the dappled glass windows....
 Carol and Harper at the end of the day, exhausted and satisfied and in love.....

 Carol at lunch, at a restaurant she ate at with Kevin years ago + it was fabulous. She had her perfect steak frites + I had the most delicious and fresh salad with avocado, shrimp and salmon with cream dill dressing - the kids had ravioli and chicken and fries....

  1. I had a chance to combine my two loves in life recently and had a two weeks' holiday in wonderful France, to which I had been before, and had loved so much. I took a little Renault rental car and headed off from Paris, to the Palace of Versailles, to Chartres then southward to sunny Provence, via the Auvergne region, with the Songs of the Auvergne playing repeated on the CD player.
    Magnifique, comme toujours. I saw many art galleries and followed the footsteps of artists, like poor Vincent Van Gogh.
    Back home all too soon, I ordered a canvas print from, choosing this painting by Cézanne,, to remember my trip by.
