Unfortunately, the weather changed abruptly about the 2nd week of June.

Little did we know this was to continue for the entire season except for about a week in August

June was a busy month for us.

San Francisco cousins were in Paris and so we met for a wonderful dinner on Ile-Saint-Louis.

Caryn, the gal that's taken care of our mail and house over the years that we've traveled,

came for 10 days with her mother and two daughters.

And we did our annual escape from the Summer Solstice "Fete de la Musique" to Étretat.

What a difference between our stay in 2010 and this year.

It was cloudy, cool, really windy and threatening with rain the entire time.

We did some fun hikes into the caves that are covered at high tide as well as hiked the northern cliff side trail.
