Stunning South Of France

These photos have been posted on this blog before, the second one as recently as last week. But when I read the theme for The Gallery, I thought they both deserved to make an appearance again.

The picture of this boat was taken at the Saltern of Saint Martin’s Island last summer. I was totally bowled over by the purple of the water, such a fabulous background for this colourful boat. We visited again this year at Easter. The water looked totally different, a mix of blue and washed out brown. On reflexion, I should have asked why (makes a note to enquire next time)!

This second photo is part of my Ten Things To Do In The South Of France post. This spice stall really stands out as you stroll around the Gruissan market. Every time, I look forward to re-discovering it, admiring the vibrant colours and enjoying the enticing smells…

Gorgeous Earrings

Our latest France trip ended almost a week ago now and I am still in French mode. A little bit. Why? Because I am wearing one of the two pairs of earrings I bought in my favourite small jewellery shop in Gruissan.

During our last summer holidays there, I came home with these finds. This time, apart from our customary supplies of the eating and drinking categories, I decided to treat myself to these very pretty earrings.
