Hailstorm over Lyon

We had our first hail storm of the season this week.

Confluence of Rhône and Arve

The Rhône’s waters are clear and glass like having come from the settled lake. The water of the Arve is cloudy with material carried down from the mountains. Where they merge is a confluence.

Street Tree Felling

The trees along Cours Lafayette have been cut down. The view down the street has been dramatically altered.

Nutty Squirrel

A loud red squirrel caught my attention in the park. Camera always on hand, I zoomed in and we watched it nibble away.

Gingerbread Biscuits Filmed

We filmed the making of our gingerbread snowflake biscuits. Watch the four minute short film and find out what it takes to make these tasty treats.

Sainte-Chapelle – Paris Highlights

Sainte-Chapelle was an utterly unexpected delight. The stained glass in this chapel is breath-taking.

Jet d'eau

Jet d’eau dominates the Geneva shore. This impressive 140 metre tall fountain of water is always worth seeing.

Gutter Feeding

Just outside our main window is a gutter. It is not a traditionally sought after view. Sometimes, as in July, we reap a little reward. Birds flock around the city and swoop into and out of the courtyards.

Versailles Water Fountains – Paris Highlights

Watch the mirror fountain perform in Paris’ grand Versailles gardens.

Arc de Triomphe – Paris Highlights

Another highlight from our trip to Paris, France, the Arc de Triomphe.
