One last look

This is another view of the church of Saint-André in Niort. And the last, at least for now. As a recap, Ken and I spent a week in a rental house in the Vendée on the mid-Atlantic coast of France back in late October. We made day trips to the coastal city of La Rochelle and to the island of Noirmoutier, and spent a morning wandering around the city of Niort. We also did a lot of shorter trips in the Marais Poitevin, closer to the rental house.

The church seen from down below as we prepared to leave Niort.

I've been posting photos from that trip for a while, but now it's done. What's next? Who's to say. Probably some views of fall from last month, although winter is now almost upon us. And so are the holidays. We have several special meals to look forward to and prepare, and there will likely be photos of those, as usual. Stay tuned!


  1. Stairway to heaven? The spire is reminiscent of that at Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe. Excellente photo

  2. Another great view. It's Immaculate Conception Day here, apparently the official start of Christmas.

  3. Shame that the sky is a bit grey-ish, but very nice composition for your picture. I'm looking forward to your special meals (and pictures of them, of course) as well as some pics of Tasha, maybe) ;)

  4. I always appreciate your 'special meals' as they are fabulous looking to me.

  5. chm, merci.

    mitch, but, but, the math doesn't add up!

    elgee, the sky was very grey that day, but sometimes that's better for photos.

    michael, and they're tasty, too! ;)


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
