    Two weeks already!! Wow, what a great time you all had. Yes, it’s all about the hot weather. I lived in the Caribbean and Florida (heat and humidity)a total of 44 years and the last 16 I have been in the NC mountains. I thought it was normal to be hot and sweaty all the time. Hope it cools down soon because you got things to do!

    Thanks for sharing, Martin

    I always love your posts, but this year they are appreciated even more. We long to travel again and enjoy the musings and photos that virtually take us on a journey, too.

    So many paintings of note, which we’ve only seen on postcards or calendars! Wow. And the art museum had my favorite chairs, so far. You obviously packed everything possible into your time with these special friends. It was great to watch it unfold in pictures. And we love the photo that the boys took of the girls, with themselves in the reflection.

    What a wonderful photo tour of a magical place! I visited Musee d’Orsay years ago and marveled then at the beautiful impressionist works. Working through your beautiful photos provided me a lovely escape from my current situation and am sure is just what I need for my healing process. Thanks Linda and Bernie!

      Karin, it is SO good to hear from you and we are delighted that you are doing as well as can be expected! My goodness, what an unfortunate accident. I’m glad to bring you a little joy, and I know you are thrilled that Emily has had a good few days down in Auburn! Everything comes at once, mais oui?

    We are at the airport in Huntsville waiting to start our journey. See you soon, once we’ve settled in!

    The Musée d’Orsay is perhaps my favorite museum. Thank you for the art tour.

    d’Orsay was my favorite! Thanks for the recollections. Bilbro’s on the way! Oh what fun. I’m so sorry you’re still having to struggle with the heat. I do believe it’s age. This has been a horrid summer! One report I saw said in 20 years, we’ll look back and ‘22 and wish for those temps. 🤯

    Thanks for the lovely remembrances of the d’Orsay. Loved Monet’s various impressions of Rouen cathedral.

    Always a treat to get up in the morning and follow your adventures through your photos. Especially enjoyed the tour through the Musee d’Orsay, realizing that we never saw this much during our visit many years ago! Many thanks! Now…get some rest before the next tour!

    I enjoyed the cutaway of Musée d’Orsay, most anything Monet is good, and the man with his dogs on what appears to be a cooler day is inviting. Thanks again.

    Linda, Musée d’Orsay is a stop I’d like to add if we can. I can’t imagine going to France and not seeing the Impressionist masters!
