Eye Candy

After receiving a number of requests for more photos, I've decided to dedicate today's post to the shots I took while on the road in France. I think they do a great job of demonstrating just how varied the landscape of this country truly is. In the span of a few hours you can go from the wide beaches of the Atlantic, to the forrested mountains of the Massif Central, to the sunny colors of Provence, to the blue seas of the Mediterranean. While traveling through France, you can see...

Colored beach umbrellas, and half-timbered buildings in Deauville.



















A tiny door made for the tiny people of the 14th century near Clermont-Ferrand.















A gorgeous lake tucked in between the foothills of the Massif Central.












A hilltop village and wild fields of Lavender in Provence.

















Road signs along the way and the narrow streets of Aix-en-Provence.
















The beautiful (and very rough, due to some seriously windy conditions) Mediterranean sea.

Wonderful! I love it when I ask for something and I just *get* it. I especially love the side road through the buildings. I wish I was spending more time in France... I definitely could use some time in the country.

Oh gosh, I'm convinced you could spend a lifetime here, Christine, and never see everything! There is so much! I think you'll be back after your first visit :-)
