    1. I love it when the heart sings. It was a glorious weekend that felt like a week! I want more of those weekends. Hope you’re enjoying yours 🤗

      1. That’s wonderful, Damien. I am–older daughter is home. We celebrated my mom’s 96th birthday with the rest of the family yesterday. Seeing younger daughter’s new puppy today, and we have beautiful weather, too! 🙂

  1. One question: Did you jump?
    You took some beautiful photos Damian. I especially love the close up of the rock.
    We just returned from 2.5 weeks in France. Miss it already.
    Bisous.

    1. Hello Maribeth, I imagine you had a wonderful time in France! Next time let’s have a glass of wine together, or at least one each!! I didn’t jump but I did climb, a lot. I love the calanque and it’s wild rugged landscape. Nature rules down there!!! Bisous
