Memories of France - part 1

Over the last few days we have been sorting through all our old photographs and negatives and Paul has been scanning them. We noticed that quite a few of the older photographs and especially the negatives left in wallets have deteriorated in condition. The photos we had placed in albums are still ok. I've just been looking through some of the photos already scanned and found some from our last holiday in France, which I thought I would share with you.

The photo above was taken on a really hot day in the shade of the huge ruins of the wonderful 'L'abbe Hambye' a 12th century Benedictine abbey set in the wooded countryside of the Manche district of Normandy.

A small cafe in Dol de Bretange, Brittany, where we had a wonderful meal before going to a concert in the Cathedral.

The scene from our hotel bedroom window in the pretty town of Villedieu-les-Poeles.

A rather misty, atmospheric view of Mont-Saint-Michel from the beach at Cherrueix, which is a glorious expanse of open coast in the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel.

A typical windmill or Moulin of the style that are found dotted along the Brittany coastline, this one is at Mont-Dol.

The harbour at Barfleur. We called here on our way down to Quineville to visit the 'Musee de Liberte'.

I'll be back with some more photos of France in a later post.
