(Retry) Southwest of France - Lots
I couldn't figure out how to delete the old thread that I posted some of these images in before, but here they are without watermarks. Lots of them, so let me know what you think.

I traveled to the Southwest of France around Bordeaux where I have had family since before the Crusades. My French heritage is very rich, and as a French Major and a History Minor, my family history fascinates me. I had not been to France in 10 years or so, and the difference between being 8 and not speaking more than 5 words of French and 18 and almost fluent made a big difference. I really hope you all enjoy the images. I am headed back to France in the fall to study for a semester and will be in Paris and Tours. I can't want to go back.

Thanks so much for feedback!
