In the Winter We dream about our visit to Provence in October 2010 – Toulon etc

It’s extrodinary cold to be in November here in Oslo, Norway.
About –12 to – 14 C or around 10 F.
Bright Blue Sky – Sunny.
But it’s dark when we leave for work and it’s dark when we returns to home.
All Photos are clickable
, so you can dispose your own time…
Hence, it’s a pleasure to present and think about our visit to the dearest couple Claudie and Pierre first week of October this year.
Here  they are on a Bandol Beach.
Bandol - Anna in Water 
And Anna? In the Sea you see..
You know, when we were there, they were both at Work. Exceptions posted earlier. So this is Anna and me in Toulon.  Some Photos. Let’s get started.

How fun, but you've gone and done it now. You've made me hungry again. Like always. You two do know how to have a great time.

I remember going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark. I don't work anymore so now it doesn't bother me anymore.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you both. :)

Lovely Toulon pictures.... remember it as it were yesterday, the harbor and the theatre building is awesome... makes me longing back of course - not to mention to Claudie & Pierres cooking!

Anna was swimming at the Bandol beach or just dipping her legs? How warm was the water? Or should I say cold? *giggles*

Oh, give me some of that Crémant de Bourgogne!!!! (Has grown to be one of our favorites actually!)
