The End, Just in Time

It seems I'm in charge of packing tonight, as soon as the laundry is dry. Jarod is asleep already, having been worn out by a long day and not enough sleep besides, not to mention by his wife, who's capricious whims lead who-knows-where for who-knows-what. Sometimes it's good. Sometimes it's not. This trip, it's been a mixture. I'd love it if every vacation were perfect, but life isn't perfect, so I'll take the good bits and brush the bad bits off as we take off. There were, after all, a lot of good bits. A whole lot.

We walked down the steps from the chateau at dusk.

oh, oh, evening, i love you best


We enjoyed Renoir's very own view.

We walked along the Promenade des Anglais at night.

We had cake for breakfast.

We walked through the gardens of a palace.

elaborate palace, elaborate gardens

When our umbrella broke, we still survived the rain.

We played tourist, and we played our part well.

Tomorrow, it will feel good to be home. After all, these dumb cats are waiting, and we're long overdue for having someone try to sleep on top of our faces.

See you at home tomorrow. Sweet dreams.
