News from abroad

We have been having some glorious weather & enjoyed outings

Along the local river (Verdon)

The main road lies above us

A drive over the mountains to a valley where I used to spend weekends staying with a girlfriend from boarding school - yes, I was lucky enough to grow up in this beautiful area....


Place Manuel

A modern sundial

Bailey had a blast at the restaurant, got loads of attention & treats (not all from me either!)

We stopped for a cold drink at the refuge at the top of the mountain on our way back home...
The cows were just out of sight but we could hear their bells and the marmottes were whistling in the distance....
It was lovely sitting up there with a breeze blowing!

Today we have some cloud and I'm catching up on some journal pages for POSITIV JOURNAL

What resources you
Lunch on a shaded patio with friends, a walk in the forest, a cold bottle of Fizz, a good book, a summer scent, cold water & a swim in the pool

These were both done with pictures from the local paper weekend supplement & the Ubaye Valley what's on brochure.

See you all again soon :-)


  1. Oh, it looks wonderful there! Thank you for sharing your fab photos - and your sunshine. The sun is peeking out for the first time in days, but they're promising us a warm sunny August - I'll believe it when I see it!

    Fabulous journal pages too - full of holiday treats.

  2. Super photos Sally. It would be good if our family friends were welcome in restaurants here , as they are in France. Fantastic pages today as well.

  3. Fabulous photos Sally, looks like you're all having a wonderful time.
    Great journal pages - and a great piece of recycling too.
