Le Tour de France Nears Dieppe

Peaceful terrain of the Northern coast of France

The now serene Northern coast of France

Today Le Tour de France takes the cyclists from Abbeville along the northern coast through Dieppe to Rouen.  What a lovely journey that will be … past fields with fat rolls of hay, past sandy beaches and steep cliffs.

In the states, we celebrate our freedom on this 4th of July.  In France the cylists perform their athletic feats all along shores that were once occupied by Germans, then freed by Allied forces at such a great cost.

Today, celebrate your freedom and your ability to make choices and cast votes.   There are too, too many people in this world who are still fighting for those privileges.  Happy 4th of July!
