A walk with Jilly

GorbioViolettes, vieilles pierres et ail sauvage, j'ai fait une jolie randonnée la semaine dernière autour d'un village qui n'est pas dans les environs d'Avignon : Gorbio, sur la côte d'azur. Ma guide n'était autre que Jilly de Menton Daily Photo à qui j'étais allée rendre visite. Après un bon déjeuner au restaurant Beauséjour à Gorbio (au chaud à l'intérieur malheureusement, il faisait trop frais pour manger en terrasse) nous sommes parties explorer les collines, cliquant joyeusement de conserve. Manteaux, écharpes, nuages accrochés aux sommets, le printemps est resté frisquet ce jour-là mais n'a en rien altéré notre plaisir d'être ensemble. J'adore quand les amitiés blogueuses sortent du virtuel pour se concrétiser dans la vraie vie. On continue la visite demain.Violets, old stone walls and wild garlic, I took a beautiful walk last week around a village that isn't near Avignon : Gorbio, a perched village on the riviera. My guide was none other than Jilly of Menton Daily Photo fame, whom I was visiting for the day. After a great lunch at restaurant Beauséjour in Gorbio (indoors unfortunately, too cold to be outside) we set off on a walk around the hills, happily clicking away. Coats, scarves, clouds covering the hilltops, it was a chilly day of spring but our joy and laughter kept us warm. I love it when blogging friendships move from the virtual world to the real one. The visit continues tomorrow.

Always so so so good to spend time with you dear Nathalie. Love the photos - all that wild garlic and violets.

I too love it when bloggers become friends and as you well know, I greatly value our friendship - please come back soon!

La dernière fois que j'ai rencontré une amie blogueuse, pas eu le temps d'aller en balade, on a mangé un plateau de fruits de mer et bu des bulles blanches et des roses. Nous étions avec nos Chéris respectifs.
J'aime bien ta première photo avé les tites violettes.
T'as pas vu mon mail passer ?

Two bloggers walking together have a special bond. "Clicking away," as you say.

I love that old wall. Always in admiration of those long ago who built such walls.

Agreste et joliment fleuri. Sans parler des senteurs...

Very cool that you two got together for a shoot. And love the shots!

Just as a path in rural France looks in my fancy--flowers, green, old stones, and Jilly!

Beautiful capture on that first shot of the gorgeous surroundings, the path and the touch of purple in the violets. I love seeing Jilly and it warms my heart that you two were together.

Bises,
Genie

Oh Nathalie, I can hear the laughter and feel the good time you two spent together. I'm so sorry I couldn't be there to join you. I can't wait to see all the photos you two captured that day. Yes, blog friends become very dear don't they!

Ta première photo est super chouette.
On en apprends des choses chez toi ce matin. Merci de ces bonnes infos sur la bourrache, c'est une très jolie et délicate fleur bleue.

Thanks for sharing.
Your beautiful images brought back some nice memories when we went to the south of France, and also met Jilly.
