Happy Bastille Day!

Well, we've been home a good half a year now and I still really miss France. Guess it's going to take a while to get l'Hexigone out of my blood.

I found some photos I took at a French cooking class on a farm in Provence.

I took the class about 18 months ago, December 2011, with some English-speaking friends.

The photos must've been forgotten in the pre-Christmas rush.

The details of the day are beyond me, but I've enjoyed going through these pictures and remembering my 'other life' in France.

  6. Ahhh... you can take the blog out of France but you can't take France out of the blog. Such beautiful photos of a 'forgotten' day. Maybe now is the time to start making chocolate Christmas trees?!! Can't see me having the time or patience to do that in December. Happy Bastille Day - France is smiling, we've had warm hot weather for two straight weeks in Paris!!

  8. I know how you feel - this time last year we were celebrating in France, and a good smelly cheese is just harder to find here in the US... Bon FĂȘte Nationale!!!

  10. Happy Bastille Day for yesterday Kirsty! Lovely to have revisited some photos with you. How I would love to get you down here in our town. We could do cooking schools, drink wine, eat far too much and you could capture it all with your trusty lens! Love this time of year with Le Tour on, although it has had some competition with the Ashes in the last few days! Love to you and yours, Ros x

  11. There were some frogs in Melbourne yesterday, doing a good gallic celebration. Perhaps you have to move there to be Aussie and French, oui??
    Brizvegas doesnt have quite the same appeal for le frog lover.
    Great photos, as always!

  16. Such beautiful pictures and wonderful colours, really atmospheric. The food doesn't look bad, either! ;-) I understand you sometimes feel homesick for France, at least you made the most of your time there! xx

  17. I have been in France for a month visiting my family and remembered your blog when we went to Najac not too far from Cordes of which you had shown such beautiful pictures. I have visited so many gorgeous places with you that I had never seen in my own country!
    On 14th July, I took pictures of the Paris' defile directly from the television!!! and I have been sooooo hot here in Perigord.
    I have put your blog again among my favorites and look forward to visit Australia with you this time.
