From Sud to Nord, Bateaux to Chateaux, I spent a summer a couple of years ago celebrating a friend’s birthday in Saint Tropez and then hired a car and drove myself to Paris, spending nights along the way at places that drew me in. Here is a smattering of memories caught on camera.

Driving up from the South – A common and never tiresome view.
French men always find time to repose. Petanque in the shade with a splash of Ricard.

Statues all over the Chateau.
A favorite reading chair in my room.
A favorite lounging spot with a glass of rose and a book.
One of the many wineries you see along your drive to the North.
An old wine barrel.
The town of Dijon.
The many kinds of salt and pepper to be found in Dijon, not forgetting the mutard!
