france – part 1

July 17, 2012

+ bread, croissant, danish, pain au chocolat, baguette – you name it, we ate it
+ 20 pounds of cheese (at least)
+ a field of poppies is as amazing as you would imagine it to be (crossing it off the bucket list)
+ hot baths under the stars
+ napping on a blanket under a tree
+ cooking on fire
+ long bike rides with baguettes tucked in the back rack – quintessentially french
+ morning skinny dips
+ going to the river with lanterns for a midnight swim and marshmallow roast
+ falling asleep to the sound of rain on the tent
+ peaches galore
+ three rolls of film (more photos to come)
+ sunshine

    So evocative! I miss Margi’s camp so much, it has been 2 years since we were there will a much younger Bear, but your photos bring all the fun back!
