  1. I like the turrets and the charming cobblestone streets. The last shot is really nice. I like the repetitiveness and the lone shutter that is almost closed.

  2. I'd have to say that Nancy is pretty fancy! Look at those ornate light poles! I also like that castle with the gaping entrance through which it appears cars drive, the wonderful streets and the blue shutters and the arch.

    Fancy Nancy has everything!

    Fun photos! Where, in France, would one find Nancy if one was to visit there?

    Leia: I hope you are having a great day with your studies today. It's about 10 to 7 here, and still dark and about 57 degrees. It should be bright and sunny and get to about 85 degrees. We are off to get the oil in our car changed and then to Bagelicious for breakfast. Would you and Cezar like to join us?

    And thank you for all your wonderful comments today…my goodness, you are so sweet. Glad you like Colorado! But I don't expect anyone to comment on all my blogs! That would be cruel and unusual punishment! 😉

  3. Thanks,

    I should explain who Nancy Drew is. or do you already know?

    She is a girl detective in books for girls. I read them when my daughters started reading them.

  6. Oh, it's lovely, Leia. I'm going to save this page, because we will be in France in the spring. I'd love to see those lamp posts, and that castle (it looks like it once had a drawbridge) and those beautiful blue shutters.
    Thank you!!

  9. Magnificent pictures!! Absolutely smashing as all of your other pictures so far… I run out of words. The first four pictures have a old charm to them and the last one a bit modern. 🙂 Very fairy tale like!!

  12. I wondered where you would take me this week, all the way to France. The second picture reminds me of Cinderella's castle. Thanks for the fun ride again this week.

  13. My dear Leia, you needn't worry. Yes, a couple can kiss in public in The Villages; just so long as they are not lit (i.e. drunk) and/or nekkid! 😉

    You should see some of the old folks. Get a few drinks in them, and wow!

  14. I adore that N is for Nancy, France.
    Some day I've really, really got to go there! 15 years in the country; it's about time. From your photos, it's a lot prettier than Clermont-Ferrand.

  15. Nice little town, Nanzeg. If I remember well my history classes, there were already people living there 2800 years ago, or something like that.

  17. I tried to post the first day you posted this and I couldn't. I have been having trouble with a couple other blogs too. Sorry, I'm late.
    I love that you picked Nancy for “N”!! Of course, I would. 🙂
    I visited the Nancy Zoo when I was about nine and my father was stationed in France. I thought it was all just for me. 🙂

  18. I like these old French back streets with their light brown façades and old wooden blinds. Elegance from another era not found this side of border.
