A la plage



Heart-shaped rocks are better than rock-shaped hearts. Definitely. This is part of my collection.

A random thought from my walk on the beach.
I often wax enthusastic about the mellifluous, poetic sound of the French language. This week's top two favorites from Ile de Ré:

"Tu veux m'accompagner à la déchetterie?" [Do you want to go to the dump?]


"Attention aux méduses!" [Watch out for jellyfish.]

Kimberly --thanks so much for directing me to your site! Now that I'm home in Paris I'll have time to follow up.

Ali -- ah, la dechetterie! The name is so much better than "the dump" and always a place to bump into neighbors, just like the marche. Receiving and shipping.

And I found even more heart-shaped rocks on a return visit. The mother lode. You should have felt the heft of my suitcase as I hauled it onto the TGV to head back to Paris. You know, when someone says "Whaddya got in there, rocks??!" Fortunately, fellow male passengers are always helpful to weak-limbed ladies with large suitcases.
