Around France

 Last Trek Through the Carolinas

It’s been a very long time since the Barefoot Blogger packed her bags to leave Uzes for Lyon, Istanbul, Nepal, and then to the States for the holidays.

The extended stay is due to a full health overhaul–greatly needed with “advancing age”– which disclosed my need for a dental implant. These things take months to complete! Soon it will all be history and I’ll return to my beloved new home in France.

Meanwhile the “friends and family” tour through the Carolinas continues. Here are some of my favorite sights!

Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

Sweetgrass baskets

Party boat!

Marsh birds

Goat Island

Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina (outside Charleston)


  “Camp Rosie” outside Southern Pines in rural North Carolina

“Time for dinner?”

For those of you who don’t know rural North Carolina, these are common scenes. Land of tobacco barns, golden fields, and trailer homes.

  1. Just finished reading Nicholas Sparks book “The Choice” set in Beaufort – made me think of you and also wished that I had visited there when I went to Charleston – oh well, one of these days

      • Hi Deborah, I like that high fallutin'(sp) name you have taken to go with the French address. You are the most courageous person I have ever known to go live in France all by your lonesome! My life is boring by comparison! But, Nashville is a great place to visit these days, and we have a guest room! For some reason I was thinking about bringing peonies to Myrtle Beach as I picked them this week- this was a year of abundance in peonies, and as I told my brother, it makes me feel rich. Glad to know you weren’t in Nepal recently.

        • So glad to hear from you Diane! Would love to visit Nashville next time to the States! You know you have a place to visit always in France. Do it! and keep in touch, please.
