We've been away on a scouting trip for the Dragonfly tour next year.  We've been in Versailles and  Normandie.  Here's a few wee photos to whet your apperite for nexxt July, those who are coming along.

Here's a few from the Abbey, so like the one that Jamie recovered in.  It's still a working abbey, with brothers and it's own Saint Anselm.

A wee Bayeux-by-night shot.  Quite a spectacular place.

We were joined for some of the trip by Robert and Theresa, from the Grain tour a few years back.  Remember them? They're the ones that drank all the wine.  Nothing's changed and they brought us some lovely grape to try.

Robert enjoying the port we'll be visiting next year.

Dragonfly Scouting Trip Photos

Just got back from France and a scouting trip for the Dragonfly in Amber tour next year.  Thought I'd post a few images we made along the way to pique your interest. Here's the first: "Bayeux by night". More to follow when I get done with all the responses to those of you who have already booked. Thanks! Makes it all worthwhile!
