Awaken to Deauville’s delights, Normandy.

Bonjour mes amis,

First of all I’d like to thankyou all for your generosity of beautiful words of appreciation. Your emails are much appreciated! It’s wonderful to form new friends and francophiles alike across the globe.

I’m sending you this photo today because it amused me when I took it at the time outside a little shop in Deauville, a very charming seaside town in the Basse-Normandy region of France.

Some vending machines drop hard teeth breaking gumballs in poster paint colours into the tiny hands of children but I came across this interesting one offering polished stones. Hmm. Of course they are not edible as the warning suggests…..let’s hope the kids can read!

A delightful alternative anyway, don’t you think? Which leads me to my next question. Does that authentic French sense of style and good taste start with the young?

Have a good weekend

Au revoir,

Best Wishes, Therese Waddell
