Paris is filled with wonderful sights and photo opportunities. This window is in a building just off the Champs d'Elysee.

This is a view of the Grotto where almost 150 years ago a young girl named Bernadette saw the Immaculate Conception in a series of 15 appearences.

At the base of the Pyrenees Mountains is the city of Lourdes. There is a wonderful outlok, but to avoid a steep hike, the funicular is much easier and more senic!

Above the grotto is a church with a magnificant tower.

I think there is something universal about boys of all ages and digging in the sand!
uploaddir=../photos/ PHOTO=97.jpg Nice Beach / France 2006
Along the Promenade d'Anglais lies a wonderful beach. Very popular, although there are stones instead of sand but the warm water makes up for that.
