My faithful readers know the main reason why I closed the blog in the first place and why I’ve decided to start almost from scratch. You won’t be able to see the 800 or so posts I’ve written since May 2009, but my new posts will be visible for all to see.
The second reason why I haven’t posted, is that I’ve spent a week in the Loire Valley with my friends B. and J.L. We had a great time and the weather gods were on our side. We left on a chilly Saturday, had some rain on the way down, but arrived at our destination under a clear blue sky.
June 1st, speeding down the motorway ...
Over the week the weather got warmer as the days went by and the sun shone down our white skins, turning them red and hot (not to say sunburned). The red gradually turned brown, and I can say that I will be returning to the office on Wednesday with a nice tan!
After a week in France I have enough material and photos (513 of them, but not all of good quality) to entertain you for several weeks … So I’m anxious to get this blog ‘on the road’ again, because I’ve missed writing it and reading your kind comments.
