Some and I for a walk we went…*

From Lardy to Chamarande (Essonne, Île-de-France), with Joseph and Nicolas, Antoinette and Jeanne, plus Robert and a biplane. *Variation on a limerick which completes a certain joke. With thanks and apologies to my high school American Lit. teacher, Ms. Reynolds.

Saint-Luc, Switzerland | 2017 winter vacation

It’s our 7th “ski vacation” and, for the first time, we returned to the same valley. Having gone to Zinal in 2014, we returned to the Val d’Anniviers in Switzerland, this time in the town of Saint-Luc. From Sierre, Saint-Luc is not as far

Normandie | Toussaint vacation 2016

We spent 4 days/5 nights in a house in Le Bourg-Dun, France just under 4 km from the beach. The weather was finer than we might have imagined yet we still used the fireplace daily. In a rental with a tiny, oven-less kitchen, the fireplace proved a real

Seine flood | June 2016

With thousands of other Parisians, we went to the river on Saturday to take a “as seen with our own eyes” survey of the flood. As I write this, we are happily seeing the sun for the first time in a week. More

Our travel east from Paris to Verdun and the Argonne forest was through Reims. Before the return train, we quickly visited the cathedral. Restoration work continues on the west front — and, coincidentally, to a portion of the nearby Carnegie library.
