Dreaming of France - The Loire

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.
First, let me redirect you to Sim's blog Chapter1 Take 1 where she is featuring my novel I See London I See France if it were a movie. She let me pick the actors who would play the characters. That was such fun. I hope you'll visit and comment.
Sunday was a beautiful sunny day in Ohio, but it still wasn't France.
When Earl and Grace visited our friends in Nantes, they spent a sunny day on a cruise along the Loire River, near where it empties into the Atlantic.
Here are a few shots from that gorgeous outing.

These pictures just make me dream of France even more.

Well, your photos certainly make me dream of France. The vantage point from the Loire River gives a unique perspective.

I ordered and received my book and am ready to dive in. I will leave a review, too.

Hi Paulita, I'm so excited you agreed to share your dreamcast for a screen adaptation of your novel, I See London, I See France - which I LOVED as you know - for my special My Book, The Movie post today! I hope all your Dreaming of France friends and readers will stop by and see the yummy cast you've selected to play Caroline, Scott, Jean Marc and Gustave.
It's definitely a movie I'd love to see!
Thanks and Bon Chance! (is that right?:)

What a fantastic cruise that would be- most of us don't get out on the water often enough.

 It gets hot in the south of France. Summer days can soar into the 90s or even 100 Fahrenheit; that's in the 30s Celsius.  And like most...
