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

Pick a Word in April

I am getting to slow at responding to Paulas Pick a Word this month.
Life is getting in my way and I have so many things on my mind. I shall have to see what I can find won’t I?
