  2. Ahhhh... Now this post made my day. Merci, Sandy. From the glorious photos of my beloved Southern Belle, Nice; to the lovely shots of Cruzy (where I have never been;) the gâteau de riz au caramel (I SO miss French supermarkets here in the US,) to the great portraits of you ladies... C'était parfait! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

    1. Hi Veronique! I was thinking of you as I posted the Nice photos.=) I still have some family in Nice...so maybe we will meet there or at the 26 Corners - which ever first!;) Yes, I fell in love with Cruzy...not the most beautiful village in Languedoc but it's location and charm - j'aime! I would grocery shop in Capestang. Cruzy doesn't really have a full one but of course it has a boulangerie and a bus that takes you to the Med. =) I miss the grocery stores in France big time! Ooh la la...if I ever come across some money I will buy a little shard in Cruzy. xo

  6. A Pictorial Adventure 'extraordinaire!'. (best French word I could come up with!)

    What a Paella! Like your smiles of anticipation before digging into that culinary delight!

    I so enjoyed the the street scenes from the various walks! Felt like I was strolling along with you girls taking in all the sights! Canal Du Midi and it's houseboats made wish I could spend a season living aboard one of them. Skivvies hanging from a clothes line on the boat gives it the 'lived in look!'

    How nice to be at home on two different continents that are so far removed from each other. I do Thank You for sharing this!

    1. Thank you Parker for your thoughtful words as usual. You said it best "How nice to be at home on two different continents that are so far removed from each other." I couldn't have said it better. It really is two different worlds. Thanks for the visit and your stroll with us. =)

  9. Oh, what wonderful memories of Nice, Eze and Cruzy!! I want to print out all these beautiful photos and paper my walls :-) You have displayed a wonderful representation of life in the South of France. The lovely girls eating paella in the first photo and on the boat with a French flag in the last photo, makes this post even more special!!

  10. What a nice tour Sandy (I really need one of this for real), I'm glad to know you and Dori had fun in France!
    I still have mixed feelings about your food pictures (they make me envious, or hungry, or both)...
    Your photos are getting better post after post, the Jean-Luc's cousin shot is fantastique!
