South of France

I went out the other night to see if I could take a picture of the Statue of Liberty with the Eiffel Tower in the background. I couldn't take the shot I thought I'd be able to.... but I was happy enough with this picture.

I'm heading down to visit my sister for a few days in the South of France. She has a daughter the same age as mine and the girls are so happy about spending some time together. My son is just happy his aunt has a pool.

I will try to post over the next two weeks, but it will not be daily.

I love how the trees are bracketing this shot...the one on the right kind of looks like a face :-)

What a wonderful picture. I didn't know that there was a Statue of Liberty in Paris too. I just never thought about it! We visitid NYC 3 times last year and when we approached the Statue of Liberty, my eyes filled with tears. That sounds corny I know, but it was so moving to see this great beacon of welcome that I'd always heard about. It was a wonderful trip, I loved it. NYC is fabulous.

Have a great time Auntie, I know you will. :)

And I do hope the weather there is a bit more accomodating than what you've enjoyed in Paris!

Were you still in Paris today to enjoy the reaction to their defeated Olympic bid? From what I hear it wasn't pretty!

You can get a great shot with the Statue of Liberty in the foreground and the Eiffel Tower in the background from the Seine River cruises -- of course, your schedule may be too jam-packed for that, but wouldn't that be a great "Paris farewell tour" activity? Have fun with the sis!

Janet, It,s a more interesting picture than I normally take! Maybe I`m "branching"out:)
Michele, Completely relaxing down here, but having great difficulty with the French keyboard!
Maggie Ann, There are actually 3 or 4 SofL here in Paris -- much smaller versions.
Terry, It`s wonderful here. Thank you.
Her Daddys Eyes; Thank you for your comment!
Michael, Thanks. I really enjoy travelling around France.
Joe, Te difference here is that my sister has a pool -- we just jump in the water when we are hot!
Irene, I hope we can meet again, but things are so crazy as we approach the last few weeks.
IS, I am kicking myself that I didn`t get that picutre when I took my other sister`s birthday cruise. That is what made me want the shot so much!
TB54, Thanks!
