My photos have taken what seems like an eternity this morning, so I'll let them do most of the talking. Yesterday was a fantastic day, and today looks even better.
The down side of this time of year has to do with bugs---zillions of them.
Late yesterday afternoon, mosquitoes came alive and hungry for blood. At the same time, the sunny side of the house was coated with a buzzing mass of flies.
Both mosquitoes and flies caused the horses to go ballistic several times throughout the day. Fly masks don't do a lot of good for the blood suckers.
On the French front, we heard from Debbie, who fended off a belligerent pick pocket. She said the experience put a damper on her morning, but they still enjoyed visiting the Louvre where they saw the Mona Lisa.
She also spoke highly of their visit to Notre Dame Cathedral.
