Tucson, Arizona rencontre Versailles, Yvelines


Last Saturday I had the immense pleasure of meeting T. Becque of Tucson, Arizona who is visiting France with her lovely son and her equally lovely mother-in-law. We had crêpes and cider for lunch and took a loooooong photographic walk through the city and palace gardens. Check out Thoughts in Images here and gorgeous art here. I had a wonderful time!

Samedi dernier j'ai eu l'immense plaisir de rencontrer T. Becque de Tucson dans l'Arizona, en visite en France avec son adorable fils et sa non moins charmante belle-mère. Nous avons dégusté des crêpes à midi puis avons fait une longue promenade photographique dans la ville et les jardins du château. Voyez Thoughts in Images ici, et de l'art absolument superbe ici.

T. Becque has spoken of her trip to France for a long time. She's a fine photographer and it is so nice you were able to get together and take a photographic walk! I'm just a wee bit jealous!

Both of these photos are very creative, Ciel - artsy-fartsy! Kudos to you!

Yes she is a fine photographer, she has a good eye for an image; so nice that she is there to enjoy your fabulous town.

Now it's time for you to come to Tucson, AZ!

Come and stay with me!

Oh Danke, jetzt weiß ich wenigstens wo sie ist ! und bin beruhig.

Leben wie Gott in Frankreich - wie verlockend muß das sein.

You must have all had a wonderful day, your visitors were lucky to have such a great guide and friend. Gorgeous images.

c'etait la semaine des rencontres entre bloggeurs (voir aussi le post de Nathalie d'Avignon), c'est toujours un moment sympatique (et comme moi quand on se comprend pas, des moments amusants)

Yes, T. Becque has a wonderful eye. I am glad you enjoyed her visit. Nice photos today, too.

Randy said...

How wonderful. Great shots too.

Woody said...

Well that really sounds like a great day and I think it's very kind of you to show her and her family around Versailles.

I look forward to a similar day in late summer, but why is it our CDP colleagues never come here? I suppose Missouri is less of a magnetic tourist destination than France.

I'm envious here, I also want to go to Versailles and take a coffee with you my dear friend! :)
And you need to visit us here in Luxembourg as well some day!
But please, don't ask me to chat in French because I don't want to disappoint you.I have an awful accent! LOL
It's so nice to meet good friends!
Hugs

Wonderful. Loved the post.

Isn't it extraordinary to meet friends from the CDP community? Generosity of spirit seems to be one of the qualities so many bloggers have in common. Thank you for your hospitality, Ciel. I'm certain T. Becque and her family were as moved by that as by the beauty around them.

Thérèse said...

It's your turn now to come and visit Arizona even if we don't have a Versailles...
We have pancakes and flavored teas (beers too) and a lot of photographic spots...

How very neat to meet some one in your town. I really enjoyed meeting you and your Mum here in Stanwood. I am sure you all had a marvelous time. MB

How nice to meet a fellow blogger. I'm sure you made their visit a memorable one.

Kaori said...

Oh I'll bet it was a long walk! Looks like you had great weather to enjoy the photo walk, too! :D

SRQ said...

Sounds like a fun day. That's nice you were able to connect in person, cameras in hand.

Magpie said...

The world is indeed a small place! What a wonderful opportunity for everyone.

Francisca said...

It always makes me smile when I read about blogging friends meeting in person. It makes it hard to become cynical about human nature. Glad you had a fun photo walk together.
