Back for Alphabe Thursday.

 

For Ms Matlocks class we had to study the letter N this week.

Since we were on a cruise visiting countries in Europe I chose  the word Normandy as we visited that beautiful part of France and that lovely little old city called Honfleur.  In this collage I just made a very small impression of photo’s of a very little  piece of Normandy. The tall bridge is called the Normandy bridge that is crossing the famous river Seine. The harbour photo I made in Honfleur.

We were so lucky to have the most beautiful weather during our cruise .

I will show more photo’s of this visit in later blogs.

 

1-cruise drie

 

Like in almost every city in most countries in Europe , when it is a beautiful day, many people have their coffee , lunch , dinner or drinks  on the pavements in front of the café’s and restaurants as you can see on this photo.

Doesn’t it look nice? You sit and watch the people passing by. Great fun.

Gezellig dat je er weer bent, Riet! De foto's doen mij goed, al wakkert dat het verlangen om a la minute naar Frankrijk terug te willen keren wel weer aan hihi!

Tot zondag, super leuk dat jij er dan ook bent! Lieve groet, Ingrid

Lieve Riet,

Mooi je foto's van Honfleur! Wij zijn er vorig jaar geweest en hebben er net als jij genoten.

Ik moest lachen om je berichtje op mijn blog. Wat leeftijd & smaak betreft zou je inderdaad mijn moeder kunnen zijn.

Fijne avond!

Lovely pictures!

VBR said...

I love the grouping of photos. The ultra modern span of the bridge and the black and white cows in the fields. Each in it's own way beautiful. Lovely posts as always.

Honfleur is mooi he, zo'n prachtig haventje. Ben benieuwd waar je nog meer bent geweest.

I am a big fan of watching people. I like the idea of eating outdoors as I watch.

Hey lieve Rietje, gezellig dat je er weer bent, en wederom hebben jullie weer heerlijk genoten van een mooie
cruise, SUPER!!! Honfleur een schitterende omgeving ben er ook een aantal keer geweest.

Gezellig altijd hé die haventjes en al die terrasjes, iedereen in een goed humeur en vooral met een heerlijk zonnetje erbij. Leuk is dat hé mensen kijken, je kan je dag ermee vullen want dat verveelt eigenlijk nooit.

En natuurlijk heb ik jou reactie gelezen, hartstikke lief.
Bijna onderaan mijn blog heb ik een gadget geplaatst "Recent Comment" heel handig want zo kan je altijd zien als iemand iets geschreven heeft ook al is dat op een post van lang geleden. Dus zodoende mis ik nooit wat,handig hé?

liefs,

Nice shots. I love being able to see other countries through the pictures of those who visit them. It would be nice if I was actually there myself, but this is the next best thing.
