Mont Saint Michel

One of the wonders of France!

This picture brings me back like if I were in the medieval times, what looks like a monk is just a tourist passing by!

Ile de Re

Since we are back to France, we are visiting friends and family, some of them for the first time in 9 years… So you can understand why I was delighted to find myself alone with my camera in hand walking in the streets of Saint Martin de Re in the lovely island of Re. My daughters were at the beach with their father and friends and at the end of my walk I was feeling lighter and relaxed.

The “roses tremiere” are wild flowers that grow everywhere in the area. Unfortunately it’s the end of the season so they are not as full bodied as they are supposed to be.  Walking in the narrow streets, only place for pedestrians and bicycles, it’s no wonder the island is the paradise for bikers.

The colors on the island are stunning blues, greens, reds…

What used to be was a fisherman harbor is lovely.

I really don’t know what not to love about “Re”… Probably too crowded in high season but I hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed taking them.
