Day Three, Monument Valley

THE scenery for "Big Sky western" movies. One overlook is named for John Ford.










Our great little Buick Encore (with the help of a topbox almost as big as the car)
carried four adults in quiet comfort for two weeks.
I've encrusted the front plate (which is not mandatory in Arizona-.
Anyone who tells us all what it is wins... more photos tomorrow!

The weather was worse than iffy, which is a pity. We even got snow flurries.

Wonderful photos of one of the magical places on earth. 

As far as the licsense plates goes....Since it's not required in AZ and you live in France part of the year, it's a French liscense plate.

In keeping with that theme, I just made French Toast for my family's breakfast this morning. (Should I have said "Freedom Toast"? LOL)  I had posted my recipe for it on the '5 Ingredients or Less' group if anyone is interested.

My wife is from the region of Brittany ( Bretagne in French), and more precisely the département du Morbihan .

A département is a political unit. There are one hundred of them, so they're smaller than a state but bigger than a county. There are now thirteen régions in Europe, and five overseas. Régions are similar in size to US states.

Morbihan means "little sea" in Breton, a Celtic language related to Welsh/Gaelic. Mor is the sea, bihan is small. The Gulf of Morbihan is an almost enclosed ocean inlet with many islands, one of the best sailing venues you'll find.
