le reve

We've been back a week.  At first I think we had more culture shock than when we arrived in Europe because one expects a different continent to be different, but for home to be comfortable and familiar.  We have been in awe of the vast, and often wasted, spaces; the excessiveness seen everywhere; and how pretty Spring is here in Illinois.  Now everything has gone so much back to normal that it almost seems as if it were all merely a dream and we've woken from our reverie.

Our last evening in La Garde we took the kids to our special place, the Notre Dame de Cap Falcon, for one last look at the Mediterranean.

::one must go through this tunnel to get there
::scrambling up the hillside

::looking down into the lagoon

::Notre Dame looks serenely out at the sea

::so does notre Phin

::little houses at the water's edge -- we'd love to live right there and listen to the constant rhythm of the waves

::one of our favorite sunset watching spots

I guess it was kind of dreamy.

You guess it was kind of dreamy - sweetie, it was a piece of heaven you shared with many. Dreamy, yes, and more. You are lovely, a beautiful mother, and friend. I simply love your blog, hence I love you!
