Thursday, December 15th

We’ve been looking for a momento to remind us of our time here in Languedoc…..and we finally found it.  It’s a painting by a local artist of the bridge in Le Somail…..a green and white boat (looking very much like our “Joie de France”) rests comfortably on the bank of the canal.

Here’s our photo of the same bridge….taken a few days ago……

    Have you stopped posting?
    I hope not. I was enjoying your photos and commentary. There aren’t that many of us retirees that are blogging about things other than financial topics.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!
