Heading south for a while...

I will be off for some two or three weeks, not in the direction of this lighthouse, which is not to be found on the French coastline but is there to attract visitors to a Paris fish market (69, rue Castagnary, Paris 15).

I will rather again take the direction illustrated by these images, down to the south of France, spending some time with family and friends.

I will thus more or less leave the blogosphere for a while – should be back last week of August... although among the friends I expect to meet, there will certainly also be some bloggers.

Take care! See you (rather) soon!

Don't worry about us, we'll be waiting here for you. :=]

I always wondered what that lighthouse was (you see it from the train at Montparnasse).

Have fun on holiday! As it looks like you're going to the Carmargue, make sure that you pack the mosquito repellent!

Tiens, j'ai fréquenté aussi un phare qu'on voit dans la RP ces derniers temps : je vide avec Pat un box dans un site dont c'est l'emblème.
Une très bonne transition que le début de ton message, on trouve de tout à Paris mais rien ne remplace l'original. Profite de tes vacances et du sud (pour cette fois) et à plus tard Peter !

I am looking forward to viewing your south of France photos. Bon voyage! Have a safe trip.

Bettina said...

Bon voyage, Peter. I hope you'll have a lovely time with your family and friends.

I have been to this fish market many times. I have some French friends living in the other end of rue Castagnary, and I have borrowed their apartment several times, so this is like "home" to me. And your photo just made me long to go back right away.

The lighthouse does look like it belongs on the coast, especially with that stormy sky behind it.
What a beautiful vacation spot.
Enjoy yourself!
