Our Spring 2009 Europe Holiday -- Etretat, France -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday --
Things below looked small when we got to the top. I was puffing a little and thanking my Cardiologist for my stents. At the center top is a nice golf course across the way
The RED GIRLS on the bicycles finally got up here in their own time (no picture).
While we were up there the fog came in off the English Channel. You can't see the golf course any more. The rental boats came scurrying in too.
I thought I had a shot of a nice painting by Claude Monet of the cliffs but I guess it didn't take. The original was under glass there on a stone on the beach. He visited here quite often for some of his sea scenes.
Traffic leaving town was fierce so we stopped at this little pizza place for supper. We might not have stopped there but for the cat's invitation.
After supper traffic had pretty well cleared out and we could head back to Honfleur (France) where we were staying.
In the morning we had driven over to Rouen where Joan of Arc had been burned at the stake. There was a neat shrine over there. That will be another post.
I can see you've had a most wonderful trip to France in May.
Isn't it wonderful being able to take all kinds of photos, while looking for red?
Those girls were so very French in style and looks. ´Elégament!
Did you really bring your golf clubs to Europe??
I would not wonder.
Good to have you safe and sound back deep in the heart of Texas.
thanks for telling me you were home a couple of days ago and sorry for not getting here sooner,
i do have my days now where i am nothing but a lazy pants.
i just watched your videos of adi and the rest of your family that you have on you tube,
that adi is quite the girl and i think almost my favourite niece.
i guess those two girls didn't mind their picture being taken and you sure did a good job of it!
you know mr. jim, one of the scarf sisters took a trip to england a couple of months ago and she has some dandy pictures on her sight.
her name is rebecca and she is a manitoba girl just like our saija.
i guess the english channel must be pretty long eh mr. jim?
well it sure is nice to see you home and i hope that you came home to good weather...
give my love to mrs. jim and a hug each to adi and katrin....love terry
I liked your Eiffel Tower shot. ;-)
I was looking for your Ruby Tuesday post on the wrong blog.
That cat in the restaurant window is adorable..
thanks for visiting me!
I want to go back to Europe. Looking at these pictures reminds me why it's a great place to both live and/or visit.
They ech brought some food.
I hope to see some pics of the Monet Gardens. You have a good supply for your posts in the next few weeks.
Take care, Stay well.Regards, Merle.
I hope Adi is better - I think I did read you said she's a little better this morning... :)
