We'll Always Have Paris

I'm posting photos from my daughter's not so recent trip to France - she had the most awesome opportunity to travel there in June with some of her French class.

Of course, I was jealous, and even though I *could have* tagged along, it was probably better that I stayed at home to let her enjoy some independence. Plus, it was good for me to let her go on her own.

After a couple of days without any frantic texts from her, I determined that she was doing great, and I was filled with relief that she hadn't lost her passport or newly minted credit card. In a nutshell, I started to relax.

But I was still jealous - I've never visited the Gardens of Giverny:
Monet's Garden

Garden Path

Or Mont St. Michel
The Castle

I had to ask my daughter what this was a picture of - it's the sand that surrounds Mont St. Michel and I believe during high tide, much of this is covered by water. I can only imagine how amazing this is to view in person.
Flowing Sand

Of course, they enjoyed the sights of Paris:
Meet Me Under the Eiffel

Old and New

Starburst

Finally, here's my favorite photo - a trio of friends on the Love Lock Bridge, overlooking the Seine.
Familiar Scene

It's my favorite because it reminds me of my own Paris adventure, 23 years ago - a shot from that same bridge, almost the same vantage point. Deja Vue for real!
23 years ago

Yes, we'll always have Paris. I hope to return someday.

Oh I've seen a video of the Bellagio. I worked for the company that supplied the steel structure to half of Las Vegas, about 13 years ago. Ya, that's fantastic. I just joined your site, too.

These photos are just beautiful...I can see why you would have liked to tag along...but the confident smiles say a thousand words too! Both you and your daughter have something grand in common now.
