This is one that seems to have lost a lot in the process of re-sizing for the Web. The original looks so much richer, textured and much more interesting.
In France on this last trip, we stayed in a small country hotel for a few days. We were there for a family wedding, and this part of France was not known for tourism. Just real everyday people/everyday scenes in France. The woman who ran/owned the hotel was also the town mayor, and the person who did civil marriage ceremonies. She did not do the Church wedding ceremony, however. It was a small town, and she had a lot of jobs there.
This is the scene that greeted us one morning at breakfast. Some scenes just present themselves ... Glad I had my camera along!
