No, no, I haven't been absent because I was tootling around Cannes the last week. I lost power for two days in Irene and then I went to Boston where I have been busy being " Junior Mom." In fact I have never been to the South of France, but I am lucky as I have friends who go each year, and they have shared some wonderful images with me to share with you before we all head back into the frantic pace of fall.

SUMMER IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE

No, no, I haven’t been absent because I was tootling around Cannes the last week. I have actually been in Boston being Junior Mom. In fact I have never been to the South of France, but I am lucky as I have friends who do go, and they have shared some wonderful images with me to share with you before we all head back into the frantic pace of fall.

Patrick and Jackie Terrial take their son Gabe, their dog Ace and head off to their house in Cannes for much of the summer. Now this makes a lot of sense, because number one, Patrick is French and number two they live outside of Atlanta where the summers can be hard to take.  And they are fortunate to have a place in Cannes to decamp to.

Patrick has this to say about their time there.

“As we travel to France very year with the family, we try to experience
all types of restaurants, a small country bistro, a local pizzeria, or  visit
our friend Paul Bocusse in Lyon. We like to  to sit by the beach on the Riviera
where we spend the summer in our family home. Food and wine is a way of
life in France and we adapt very fast.”

Sounds pretty good to me!

This is why the French are thin.
This too, they make everything look appealing.
Now the French eat a lot of this and they still stay thin, I'm yet to make peace with that.
A real Salad Nicoise
Jackie and Gabe living it up! That might be Paul Bocuse in the bg.
All I need is this and a loaf of bread and I can call it week!

 

Makes me want to sit right down with a bottle of Rose and few Gitanes.
The Terrails drive from Paris to Cannes. they pass things like this.
