Giverny, 07/2005

Another drive while again Stephan was working, was to Giverny.  I spent quite a long time in the gardens of Monet's beautiful hideout,  and made friends with the guide in the house.  It's amazing how it all comes back to you when you have to use French to communicate with people. 

The famous boat...

...and the equally famous lilies in the pond

I even took a picture of myself which turned out to be OK
