Cool Hand Luca

Cool Hand Luca

A Luca photo to last you a couple of weeks. After my flying visit to the UK where the sun shone and it looked like summer had eventually arrived and I managed to get a few photos of our grandson Luca, I am now back in France.

I just loved this image with his sunglasses on - he looked so cool. Luca is now beginning to say a few words, although he understands a lot, but as he is learning his mother's native language, Brazilian Portuguese and English, he has a lot to take in. One of his new words is 'Tractor' so granddad had to buy him a tractor, a toy one of course and we had great fun.

Today we are off on holiday / vacation so my next post will probably not be for a couple of weeks.

Brocante puppets

Brocante puppets

On Sunday we had the Rabastens local Brocante, an open air sale of all things old, and it is a great opportunity to get some nice images of things from the past. Wandering around in the warm September sunshine and enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and making sure there was limited cash in my pocket. I still ended up buying and old camera!

This will be the last post for a few days, or maybe to the end of the month. I leave later today for a few days in the UK to see my son and family then after that a couple of weeks vacation / holiday somewhere in France - haven't yet decided where.

Coffee Maker

Coffee Maker

At the morning market in the town Rabastens today I discovered a Artisan Torréfacteur. He has all sorts of coffee and Tea's that he cured himself. I'm not quite sure what that means but we bought some Brazilian coffee beans which this gentleman ground for our filter coffee machine.

I will be looking forwards to my coffee tomorrow morning.

My favourite subject our grandson Luca enjoying some British sunshine. I will be able to spend a whole day with Luca next week as I will be in the UK for a few days.

That's going to be shear joy.

Another view of the Tarn countryside from the sky taken from a micro light aircraft.

The first person to tell me what how the design is made might just receive a postcard from this beautiful area. I await your comments!
