grafitti from 1866, a bridge, a boat, the sun and the sea and white horses …

Some last photos from Charente Maritime! The bridge is the Tonnay Charente 623m suspension bridge, built in 1842, and the grafitti comes from under the bridge and dates to 1866. The sea/coast is the Atlantic and  the rest is history as tomorrow we will be adjusting to life in Edinburgh, Scotland. The difference? About 15 degrees 🙁   Also, I have to correct something I said in my last blog post: while wind turbines are huge they are not noisy (I checked!)

    What a beautiful place, Marianne. I’d find it hard to leave it behind and I am very much a city girl! Try your best to bring the sun home with you please… XX

      Hi Adrienne, back in Edinburgh now and already missing the sun – sorry i didn’t manage to bring it back 🙁 That said, my heart skipped a beat the moment I saw the Forth Railway Bridge. It’s the same if I come out of the train station and see the Castle again – and get a whiff of that smell of hops from the brewery ( if that’s what the smell is?). We’re so lucky to live in such a beautiful city – rain aside ;o)

    Looks beautiful! Sigh… It is hot and sunny here (in North Carolina) but not quite as scenic where I am!

    I so love the open vistas there:0)
    Back in Edinburgh now and, yes, it’s overcast – and instead of listening to turtle doves cooing I can hear seagulls squawking. ha ha! I think North Caroline is very pretty – and you have the sun, which always helps :0)
