Taste of France

We survived! And had a blast - the whole trip was one huge, non-stop adventure!

I'll try to write down some of the stories as I post pictures. Until then, here's a few pics taken with my old, little camera. We took most of the pictures with Lindsay's way-awesome cameras, but I don't have copies of those pics yet, so...enjoy!

Some church we came across on our walk from Montmatre to the Eiffel Tower



We met up with my Uncle Craig and Catherine at the Eiffel Tower and then had dinner.

You picked some good pics. Nice Nice sunset! My favorite has to be Uncle Craig with his "sly dog" look - probably 'cause he is out with three beautiful women.

thanks for sharing! So glad you had a grand time. what did you sense from the French? Were they friendly toward you? Glad for tourists?

Great pics... and they triggered quite a few memories, as well. But we won't go there...

Were you surprised at the rocky beaches in Nice? (I mean vs. sand, of which there ain't any.)

Amazing how you and Lindz look so bright-eyed and refreshed in that dinner picture...considering you had been up, what, 36 hours?@!@! It's fun to see your pics; I look forward to the stories that only you can tell!

Joyce,
For the most part everyone was nice. Occasionally, we encountered a crabby person. But when we really needed it, there was always someone there willing to help. I was incredibly grateful for these people - I'll try to tell some of those stories.

Buck, I had read that the beach was rocky, but I was surprised at the smoothness of the rocks. Had I had water shoes, it would have been the ideal beach!

Thanks again Catherine! More pics and stories to come!
