The last day

The tradition in France is to celebrate the eve of the new year with a feast that includes oysters and other shellfish, foie gras, and sparkling wine. Ken and I will be doing our best to uphold tradition, of course.

The local vineyards at the end of December 2013.

The weather is not expected to be spectacular, but it's not going to be bad, either. There will be no ice or snow in our region. Still, we will not be driving during the dark hours. Enjoy your New Year's Eve, wherever you are!


  1. A beautiful panorama. Have a happy, and tasty, New Year's !

  2. Walt, très bonne année à vous et Ken! Your blogs have been one of the joys (well, actually two, since your blogs are separate) of 2013. Looking forward to 2014 and peeking into your life together through this window on the internet !

  3. Fun, fortune and fromage is my wish for you both! Happy New Year.

    1. What a cute way to express your wishes, Cheryl!
      I will try to remember it!
      Happy New Years!

  5. Happy New Year to the two of you. Wish we could be there to share in the French tradition!
