Bastille Day - France

Today, the 14th July is Bastille Day in France.
In honour of the day I've searched through my photos from a couple of years ago taken on travels to France. Some are from a trip in January and others were taken in late September.

This is my absolute favourite photo from Paris, Bitchypoo skipping down the street in the rain.

Don't you just love those blue and white umbrellas, oh to be sitting there right now.
I love the quirky old paths in the small towns, so many things to see just around the corner out of sight.

Paris, the view from the top.

On Saturday the 16th July the Brisbane French Festival will be held in Brisbane at Southbank Parklands in honour of Bastille Day.  I went last year, the inaugural year, and it was buzzing. So many people and so many interesting things to see. It was apparently the biggest French festival in Australia.


  1. I love Paris, I've only actually been twice, once to Paris and the other time to Euro Disney (which doesn't really count as we didn't really see any of Paris). Thanks for sharing your lovely photos.

  2. Paris is my very favourite city, I love it and I may have to check out that festival on Saturday. great pics. ahhh

  3. Great photos, Marg! You should enlarge the skipping one. It would look great on canvas! ☺

    Joyeux Quatorze Juillet!

  4. I was hoping the baby would come today but it doesn't seem likely, so no Bastille Baby for me :(. I couldn't be bothered posting today - we are watching the Tour de France live and enjoying the public holiday!

  5. I've enjoyed Bastille Day in Avignon which was abuzz with an arts festival! Greta fun! (Hold off on that baby Kirsty - we are catching up for coffee tomorrow! LOL!)
