Today's Wonder of the World is...Corsica!
Are you ready for my blog version of a slide show?
And are you old enough to even know what a real slide show is?
My mom and daddy always took slides. That way, when we were home from a trip, we could put a sheet up, invite people over, and keep them captive while they looked at our pictures!
I'm going on a little vacation from the blog for the rest of the week, so I thought I'd do the same for y'all for the next few days. Prepare for a whole series of Wonder-Full Slide shows!
Today's subject is Corsica!
If you've read French By Heart, you'll know that we had a dear neighbor friend who hailed from this place. In case you don't know, (as I didn't until I met the Corsica Man,) Corsica is an island between France and Italy. It belongs to France--if it belongs to anyone. It's wild and beautiful. Really.
We went there for vacation our last year in France.
Here are some pictures.
Anyone have popcorn?
Here's the hotel we stayed in.
A ninety something lady named Mimi ran the hotel and did the cooking.
We ate dinner there every night. She told us she'd open early for us, since we had kids.
Early meant 8pm.
My children look a bit like zombies.
(Something is wrong with the time stamp on the photos, in case you're wondering.)
Goats were in charge of the transportation system.
Take a look at one of my favorite places in Corsica.
It's a church, supposedly built overnight by angels, out of the green Corsica stone.
We barely made it up the mountain to see it that foggy morning.
We weren't the only ones who loved that church.
Look who kept us company!
A cemetery in Corsica:
Ah, Corsica! I can just smell the wild herbs!
Have a Wonder-full Tuesday, everyone! And come back tomorrow for another slide show feature!
