Surprise

Walking around Dijon a few years ago imagine my surprise when I saw this.

and in Beaune

and in Kyogle

but the biggest surprise was for Benny. Sound asleep with his “dog” which he used to carry from place to place

and woken to find his photo being taken

Cat in the Window

The photo challenge from Judy at Life Lessons: Cat in the Window

While travelling in France, we stayed in Dijon with a lovely couple in an AirBnB. They suggested we go to a nearby town, Beaune.  We were walking in Beaune when some people started to look across the road and up to a first story window. A couple of people spoke to us in French and then signalled us to look up. A magical moment shared with the people in the street.

Not really a Cat and not really in a window but three cats sitting outside of a window
