A lush bamboo forest bends and breathes gently in the summer sun. But I don’t hear it.
A majestic home built to last, dressed to impress, groans it’s age. But I don’t hear it.
A storm is brewing beyond the lake. But I don’t hear it.
Two treasure hunters, X marks the spot. They sing delight. But I don’t hear it.
All I hear is a world gone mad. Lies, deceit, broken promises. An uncertain future. Brexit. …Thank god for French Wine! Everything tastes better in France. Even Brexit.

A week full of relaxation, little beach towns, delicious food, European musings and toddler adventures.
Amelie is smitten with her ‘Fred Fred’. She followed him like a lemming the whole week as you can see in these pictures. She’s still waking up saying, “where’s my friend?” Their reunion will be photographed.
