France, again

by Cathy Grafton on 11/14/12

Bonjour.  I'm just a week back from lovely France again.  On my first vacation since starting at the library, I went back to France for two weeks -- spent time at my favorite places in Paris, gardens, passages, walking....walking.....walking and traveled to Bayeux to visit the tapestry and drink some very nice wine, on to Mont St. Michel for some of the fall high tides and finally to Dinan, that lovely medieval city with wonderful crepes and fish.  Then I returned to Paris for a few more days including a visit with my friend Estelle who took me to stitchery shops that I could never find on my own.  November is scallop season in France and I did my best to eat my share of them.  Also attended the Salon du Chocolat - an experience that deserves its own write up.

Will probably write about some of these adventures in future posts, but right now I am still basking in the warm glow of the trip.  Lost track of a good friend who use to work at Poilane, hope someday she will read one of my posts and get in touch with me.

Au revoir for now.
