Thursday Doors: Saint-Émilion, France

First one big doorway! We have arrived in Bordeaux traveling from the Bay of Biscay down the Gironde River, where there was sometimes only four feet between the ship’s bottom and the river floor.

Where’s My Backpack: Travel Theme, Branches

This year the trees look so colorful to me and I like the contrast with their dark black branches! I didn’t have to go far for these pictures either, they were taken in my backyard!

Thursday Doors: Mont-Saint-Michel, France

Cruising:In the Beginning There Was a Port

You have to get to the ship. That’s a good place to start on our first cruise ever………at the beginning.
