Road Trip Photos from France

France has nearly everything: beaches, mountains, farms, culture-rich cities, caves and so on.  There were a number of times last month that I wished I could have stuck my camera out the window while driving through.  The five plus hour drive from North Holland through the North of France can go from boring to bodacious in the space of one kilometer.  Below are a few sights that I was able to shoot while I wasn't behind the wheel. 

Lots of color at the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris

Very inviting restaurant entry at St. Michel


We joked about specialty stores in Paris.  Here's an umbrella and cane store.
