I'm back!


I'm back! This time I can't blame my absence on aliens, time warp, cosmic imbalance or any form of paranormal activity. Nope lucky old me has been on holiday! Though with the foul weather now - listen you can hear the rain hammering on the windows - it seems ages ago :(( Ahh the sun... the lovely hot sun! It was F A B U L O U S !!! I lurve France! I mean don't get me wrong I love America too but I actually enjoy the getting to France. Drive to the ferry, catch boat, have a lovely meal, a few beverages ;)), bed a nice drive on roads without potholes and we're there. Much better than the airport drama of luggage and queues!

So prepare yourself I have photos!

This is me with the Chateau de La Bretesche in the background.

A little sidestreet in a pretty little seaside town called Piriac

The beach at Piriac. Now this 'ruin' is on the beach and is below the tide line. I don't know what it was really but I'm guessing that it was perhaps something to do with oysters. All those white splodges are actually oysters! There were loads of people on the beach chipping them off the rocks and digging up clams and cockles.

Rocks at the same place!

You can see some of the folks digging, they all had little rakes and baskets.

Part of the gatehouse at La Bretesche - isn't it beautiful?

Little backstreet at Le Croisic - it was just a car width! Ours only just fitted!

Little cove near Batz sur Mer - these rocks and sand actually sparkle! Oh I tried a paddle - freezing!

I think this house is just so pretty, its in the medieval part of Guerande

The beach at La Baule, this beach is just fantastic!

The chateau at la Bretesche, its built in a lake!

So a taster of our French trip - I have about another 600 photos.... I'll share a few more, unless you want to see them all..... ;))

Now onto the important stuff ;)) The new challenge at Totally Gorjuss this week is in honour of my holidays, well kind of. Its Ooh la la! hehe kind of appropriate huh?

I've used this little sauce pot from Kraftin Kimmie - isn't she Ooh la la personified? She's one of my favourite Kraftin Kimmie stamps. Papers are some scraps of Basic Grey Scarlets Letter.

Here's the arty shot of those beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
