We planned a less ambitious day today. Northern France was the home of Claude Monet, the leader of the Impressionist Art Movement. His home and gardens in Giverny were turned into a museum open for public tours in the 1970s. Monet painted some of his most recognizable works while living there, including Waterlilies. We were able to walk through his home and see reproductions of the many works he painted while living there. We were also able to see the lily pond where he painted many famous works. Anne really enjoyed the visit. She took many pictures of the flowers, landscapes, and Tony and Michelle. Tony took many pictures of Anne taking pictures. We had lunch at the restaurant across from the museum with some French dishes. Afterwards we headed back to the resort for swimming, dinner, some Skype with family, and the next World Cup game, USA vs. Belgium. According to Tony it was an exciting game that went into overtime. Unfortunately the US team lost but they played well. Tomorrow we head to Bayeaux and the D-Day Sites before our next stop, Paris.
My name is Tony Wilson. I, my wife Anne, and my Daughter Michelle live in Atascadero, CA, and lead typical lives, we like to think.
We love traveling... all over the place. Often, our travels are routine, or only slightly exciting for a short time. Good things in life come in small measures. However, on occasion, we do have more epic journeys and people like to hear about them. These are our travel sagas.. I hope you enjoy them.... full info
