Dreaming of France -- Perfect Beach Day

Thank you for joining 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.

Today in Ohio, the weather is nearly perfect. Sunny, 77 degrees (that's 25 Celcius) with a lovely breeze. It would be a perfect day to spend on the beach.
It reminded me of another lovely day on the beach in 2006, when we visited Bandol along the Mediterranean.

First let me set the scene. You can see the beautiful villas and hotels across the bay.
Our kids were still young enough to enjoy digging in the sand and running along the beach. 

Look at that intensity.

 But mostly, look at the joy of running and kicking up their heels.
I hope you find joy this weekend, whether it is on a beach in France, or wherever you are.
And my thoughts are with the people in France and in Houston who have suffered rising flood waters.

 Thanks so much for playing along with Dreaming of France. I really appreciate your participation and I hope you'll leave a comment plus visit each other's blogs.

I'm also joining a link for All About France. All of you France lovers have another place to visit now with this once a month meme.

what a lovely sandy beach. I aways think of the French beaches as having pebbles.

Why do we stop behaving like that? Just having fun? They were at a great age for a trip, too--big enough to remember, young enough not to be jaded.

Beach weather is here in South West France too. We have been so fortunate to escape the floods and the rain, just grey skies, but yesterday the sun came back out to play and it's here to stay, but alas the children are back at school, roll on the weekend, can't wait to go and kick about in the surf, the beach makes everyone happy!

The beach looks so inviting it always reminds me of holidays as a child, when summerswere so long and hot.
