New look for summer

The new picture is of Canet Plage, which is in the south of France near Perpignan, where I spent ten days as D's guest in her family's apartment two years ago. The apartment was right across the street from the beach and we had gorgeous weather the whole time I was there. Unfortunately I can only sit on a beach for a few days before I start going stir crazy so I was kind of bored a lot of the time, and because of my various medical issues I can't just sit out in the sun for hours, so the amount of time I could spend on the beach was restricted anyway, I was always sous parasol and wore kind of a lot of clothing. Despite being so close to Spain, Perpignan, Collioure, and Carcassone we only took a couple of day trips to other cute little towns in the area (Banyuls sur Mer and Villefranche de Conflent), but it was really nice of her to invite me in any case. It's never bad to spend part of your vacation on a beach in the south of France!

Nice picture! For some reason, it looks so French to me. Well, I guess there is a reason - it's France.

Glad everyone likes the picture!

Monique - I know! Another time. Like when you come see a game at Comerica Park. I may actually go to SF another time later this year, so we'll just see!

All my best.

GYSC - love the pug pics! I hope he had a good time on his hot date :) I had a really good suggestion for music tonight, but I can't seem to remember it right now! For next week maybe?

Leesa - glad you like the pic! Maybe you should try visiting the beaches on La Manche this summer?
