Friday Field Trip - Burgundy Canal

First, as promised, the winner of Lynda Hilburn's contest is ... WATERY TART! Please email Lynda at boulderboomer (at) to let her know how to get your prize to you. Congratulations.

House update: things are moving along. Yesterday, the contractor started installing base cabinets, and the closet company installed the shelving units in both of our offices. That's the good news. The bad news is that we're without any sinks upstairs, and have only a pedestal sink in the basement bathroom to use, unless we decide to use the bathtubs. And it'll be at least 3 weeks before the countertops and sinks get put in. I'm seeing a lot of disposable dishes.

Today, I promised a trip to France. Mom took a barge trip down the Burgundy Canal, and she's sharing some of her pictures. You can click on them for larger images. Last minute update -- just talked to my mom, and the picture of the tree on the rocks was taken in Maine, not on her trip. She thought it was pretty (as do I) so she threw it into the mix.

And, a critter report, sort of ... The hubster went fishing Wednesday. For the record, it was about 16 inches long.

Gorgeous photos of France and a nice catch with the fish. Good luck with the sinks being installed. Just keep telling yourself it could be worse, you could be without any sinks. :( Hope you have a great weekend.

Thoughts in Progress

Thanks, Mason. I think I'll go buy a couple of dishpans! Hubster found some wood that will serve as a 'countertop' so we have a place to put the coffeemaker and microwave, and do some minor food prep. We'd eat out more, but there aren't many eateries nearby.

Great photos - thanks for sharing.

Jess -- I remember it too. Didn't realize it was part of this trip, though.

PL - my pleasure

I always look forward to your Friday photos. These are great, too. Nice fish :)

Beautiful photos, again!

Fish, it's what's for dinner, huh? Nice catch.

Terry Odell said...

Thanks, Carol & TerryS -
Fish is in the freezer due to the lack of a kitchen to cook him in. :-)

Quick update -- Just talked to my mom. That picture of the tree was taken in Maine, not France.
