Forgive me…this is not today’s lunch with my camera phone…I often skip lunch, and that would be a pretty boring photo…
One of the most memorable Lunches I have ever had, was a Sunday lunch last summer in Les Arques, France at Le Recreation (I’m not really sure if there is any other restaurant in this village, in which case, I could just say, I had lunch in Les Arques!)
Elegant, memorable, wonderful ambiance, the most delicious food, and great friends…what could be better?
Setting the scene
Un aperitif, Madame?
Sesame crusted shrimp
Specialite de la maison…Lobster ravioli
Finally…the chocolate and caramel
Chocolate bombe, pre-explosion.
Au revoir, Les Arques
Next day, in St. Cirq Lapopie, kids enjoying their lunch on a bench, as much as we did in Les Arques!
I love taking closeup pictures of flowers…almost getting inside of them…I feel surrounded by colour and the minute details that make up the whole.

Last weekend on a trip to Charleston, South Carolina, we had the privilege of visiting Boone Hall Plantation…one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen.
Its Avenue of the Oaks is famous for being the inspiration in the opening scenes of Gone With the Wind. Although the main house is quite beautiful, the moss-covered oaks, bowing to each other in the middle of the dirt road, are truly something to behold. The trees beckon you FORWARD…but one just can’t help pausing to stare.
