      Re: about Caen-Normandy

      What an interesting collection of photos, Yves. The one at #89 is well captioned - all it needs is the Jolly Roger flag! As attractive images per se I do like the one at #95.1 of the Lille street scene and also the one immediately after of the shuttered windows. Going back to the Pegasus Bridge is that the original or was it re-built after the war?

        No ivy,this bridge was built in 1994,larger but in the respect of the original one.You can still see the former bridge in the bordering museum.

          What a fascinating exhibition Yves and such an informative documentary in the photographs and art of the period. I like that last picture, and the slogan “from covered pier to covered pier”. Oh and I’m charmed by the puppet show!

            Fascinating indeed!

            They certainly knew how to build ships in the past: compared to now, there is nothing like it at sea.

                      Last saturday in spite of our frozen May,Françoise and I went to the sea in Deauville.
                      Here are few pictures from there.

                              I have to admit to a lack of enthusiasm for pictures of food, much as I may enjoy it when eating out. But it is an interesting idea that Pays d'Auge has - local produce but cooked in the style of another country. Very attractive, I should think. Did you try some?
                              Now Deauville is a different story. Your images of the closed beach umbrellas and stacked chairs are delightful in a rather ironic way, Yves. But there are a couple of kite fliers there, so someone was enjoying themselves. I studied the poster of Hiramatsu's painting in his Homage to Monet and wanted to know more. Google offered many of that name, the first one being a footballer (of course!). But finally there he was, Hiramatsu Reiji, or vice versa - I'm not sure which is fore- and which is surname. Now that would be an exhibition well worth seeing, I would think. Might you visit it, Yves?

                                Ivy,
                                1) Yes I taste it(nice) then asked the recipe to the chef.I cooked it for Françoise and I and she said:"not too bad".
                                2)I didn't visit yet but I will.The exhibition takes place in Giverny(about 100km from Caen) the former Monet's house and gardens,a museum where Iwent a lot of times.I saw already the PISSARRO's exhibition in Le HAVRE.Great!
                                3) Footballers are a nuisance!!!!
