Dreaming of France -- The Mediterranean


Please join this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.

On a sweltering day like we had Saturday, and even the high humidity of Sunday morning, nothing could sound better than a dip in the cool, sparkling Mediterranean Sea.
Luckily, that's where Grace was this weekend, so I have a picture, even if I didn't get to dip my toes or other body parts in. She and Delana, who lives in Aix en Provence, went to Carry La Rouet.

Sigh. I don't know about you, but I'm really dreaming of France now.
Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France. Please leave a comment and visit each other's blogs, too, so you can get your fix of France dreams.

I came back from Provence a week or so ago and it was very nice but not warm enough to swim as least for my taste :)
Have a great week ahead,

The water does look a little cold but young people are crazy; they don't care about that. Nothing deters them. I vaguely remember that feeling; these days I dip in my toes and if it's too cold I just say, maybe next time.
For my Dreaming of France contribution I'm linking to The Last Time I Saw Paris; an Elizabeth Taylor/Van Johnson 1950's flick based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story, Babylon Revisited. Bon Journee!

It's very cold here today. 5 degrees. That picture is gorgeous and making me long for summer.

So glad Grace is getting to have so many fun and varied adventures here in France!

I remember seeing the sea on our trip to Monaco , very inviting. We definitely have not had any weather that would tempt me into the sea , especially not the UK sea.

Thanks to everyone for leaving a comment and for playing along. I imagine the water is a bit warmer in the south of France than other places.

Gorgeous, lovely place to take a dip!!

Such beautiful water! BTW, did you see the trailer for A Walk in the Woods? Two older men hike the Appalacian Trail based on book by Bill Brison. Maybe your book will be the next movie!

Paulita said...

Linda, I did not see the trailer, but I've read they book. Someday, one of my books will be a movie!!
