  5. Another fantastic page Patty. You caught the feel of those cute red and white houses without putting them really on the page. I am still in awe of your fantastic trip. It must have almost been overwhelming seeing all those gorgeous places. I am glad there is still more to come because I am loving being an armchair tourist right now. Hugs-Erika

  11. A beautiful old part of the town, and the most gorgeous red netting ,which I have never seen before Patty., looking like velvet and lace, the way Jim photographed it so beautifully. And your spread holds just the same beautiful tones, from the busy fishing village, and the sand and water around .
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend, dear!

  12. Wonderful how you combined the maps with the photos of St-Jean-de-Luz and the old letters in the background. Lovely photos from this red and white colored village.
    Happy weekend.

  13. It’s wonderful that you so enjoyed the French trip. Your photos here look quite old-fashioned (in the best sort of way) and your pages have an old-worldly look too, maybe enhanced by the yellow background. How nice for you to have an excuse (not that you need one) to continue in your travel journal, and of course, how nice for us.
