With my Sister

A train ride, a visit with my Sister, a special place, beautiful surroundings, warmth, hugs, lunch, salad Nicoise, laughter, giggling like schoolgirls, talking, walking, ambling around randomly snapping, wine, splashing about in the pool, more giggling, afternoon tea, emotion, tears on the train back.  A day I shall remember for ever...

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.


  1. I am as green as those doors... beautiful. Have fun with your sister.

  2. So very beautiful--both the gorgeous, rich photos and the emotions behind them! My Sister is coming one month from today and I am so excited that I can barely breathe!

    What a wonderful final resting place for Mr. Chagall.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    PS. I have a hand-knocker photo in my current post too. :)
    PPS. I put an email on my profile and cut out a lot of the drawling nonsense about me, me, me while I was at it!

  3. Thank you so much for this beautiful post! Your stunning photographs have captured so well the essence of St. Paul de Vence --and have brought back so many wonderful memories of a very special visit there.

  4. If I did nothing but look at these photographs, it would be a great weekend!

  5. Bonjour Dash. All the photos I took at St Paul de Vence last summer were stolen when bad guys broke into my house in the fall. I was so happy to return thanks to your fun post. In fact, I should thank you. Since I will be in Nice in a few weeks, I will head back to St Paul de Vence and treat myself to a decadent lunch at La Colombe d'Or - where some of my favorite celebrities used to hang out back in the day. Damn. Better start saving now for the feast :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  6. ... Oh and I forgot to add that I am really happy that you and your sister got to spend that fabulous time together! :-) Veronique

  10. Nothing like fun with a sister! Lush photos and can hear the giggles and splashing in the pool!

  11. Simply beautiful images and also happy memories as I celebrated my sixtieth birthday with a family lunch at the Colombe d'Or.

  12. Oh Dash, I'll be out this way next week, how utterly stunning, oh this makes me want to move someday.

    I looked at those shoes - oh perfect rubber soles!
    I love the tan and the hot pink, have you decided?

  13. What a wonderful day, unforgettable and shared with us all! thank you so much for that, your photos are magnificent!

  14. Lovely and colorful pictures.
