About Me

Moved to France in September of 2018 after buying our apartment in 2017 after the debacle of the election. We're glad to be here, but we continue to be involved with what's happening in the US.

I asked if I could take his picture.

Just saw the first lizard of the season! Spring in Provence has arrived!

No robins here.

An Englishman in France. Our friend Rupert, contemplating his morning coffee and cigarette, in the Place des Herbes - Duchy d'Uzes in the Gard.

Daily touch of France - Monday edition - Place Verdun fountain

Kids in hats

Daily touch of France - Sunday edition - Three generations.

We were at a gastronomic fair in Gardanne a couple of months ago and were having lunch. These three women were sitting across from us. I asked if I could take their pictures. Three generations, sitting together, eating lunch, drinking some wine and enjoying each other's company.




I'm sorry. I was wrong and inappropriate. I apologize.

Daily touch of France - Saturday edition - Red highlights.

Shopping in the winter light - rue Gaston de Saporta - Aix

More shopping - Rotonde - Aix-en-Provence

A pause for coffee - Le Gaulois - Sainte-Sauver, rue Gaston de Saporta - Aix

In the winter sun - Rotonde - Aix

On The Thames - 2018 Goring Lock - A boat, a dog, a plaque.

A slightly different selection than my usual pictures.
The boat intrigued me. Wooden, with a French name, and with a red ensign, plus the cross of St George.

I got closer, because of the dog.

That's when I saw the plaque -

Yes, L'Orage was one of the boats that went to Dunkirk and came back.

Daily touch of France - Friday edition - Winter storm in Cassis

A bit of a departure - as these are in colour.

The lighthouse at the entrance to the yacht harbour.

Another breaking wave.

The 'French Connection' house. This house was used in the opening scene of 'The French Connection', when Charnier drives up in a Jaguar.
Avenue De L'Amiral Ganteaume, Plages de Bestouan, Cassis, Bouches-du-Rhône, France.
