Just A Few Photos!

Well I have started to go through the 1800 photos that I took in France so I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you, don't worry I won't subject you to too many!!
This photo was taken on our way to Rocamadour which you can see in the background, it turned into a gorgeous hot sunny day and Rocamadour was amazing, don't know how they managed to build it right on the edge of the cliff!
One of our favourite days was when we canoed 13km down the Dordogne river, we started off early and had the river pretty much to ourselves which was great. We all really really enjoyed it and could have gone on for a lot longer (despite the blisters on my right hand from paddling!!) I was pleasantly surprised how these photos turned out, it wasn't easy trying the take a photo while balancing in a canoe and holding on to my paddle! It also meant that I wan't concentrating on where Emily and I were going and we managed to run aground at one point lol. All good fun.

I love this photo of the girls, just about sums them up lol, it was taken in Sarlat which was a gorgeous town with amazing old buildings, apparently it has been used as a film location many times.
Emily is Harry Potter mad at the moment and read 3 of the books while we were away!
In the front garden of the gite there was a lovely big tree which made the perfect location for photos, it let just enough sunlight through. I managed to persuade them to let me take their photos there, I took loads but these are two of my favourites.

Justin even took a few of my under the tree and surprisingly I was actually quite pleased with them!
My little family, this was another photo taken at Rocamadour, we climbed up the zig zag path to the Ch√Ęteau at the very top of the cliff and on each bend there was a little shrine. 
Another one taken at Sarlat, our first visit had been on Market day when the whole town was just heaving so we went back for a second time just so we could have a proper look around without fighting through crowds all the time.
A lot of our time was spent by the pool at the gite, it was so lovely to feel the heat of the sun all the time, I was definitely meant to live in a hot country!

As you can imagine I have got loads more photos but I won't bore you with them! I have ordered some so they will start appearing on my pages soon enough.
My Creative Scrapbook have got an exciting new project being launched soon, if you love using sketches you are going to love this! Keep an eye on the MCS blog for the big reveal in a few days time!
