Anyway, , here are a few shots from the beautiful medieval town of Bayeux, home of the Bayeux Tapestry, where I met these charming children on holiday from the UK. I wish I were their teacher!!
[I can't help it. I gravitate to kids. This is how I used to photograph my own students when I took them on EuroTrips. Sniffle. I miss it.]
Bayeux had lots of sweet boutiques, with many devoted to needlework
This one was my favorite. Ooo, the dentelles!..
inside the shop.
I bought my one frivolous item on the trip here from this adorable shopkeeper: very jazzy French leggings. I really wanted her dress!
Never, ever, ever stay at this hotel: La Maupassant. Even though it is extremely cheap and you feel very virtuous for being so frugal,[ because you are going to spend the farm on a chateau the next night] and they promise you a bathroom and shower in your room, don't believe it. You will lie awake ALL night long, staring at the sink
and taking pictures of your feet with your iPhone,
and hang out the window taking pictures of the building across the street,
afraid to go down the hall to la toilette,
and I'm smitten with the kitchen, downstairs, under the main floor
this is where the scullery maids peeled vegetables and threw the peelings out into the river
I love this little scene
There are beautiful flower arrangements all over the chateau
the gardener's cottage
