Today we will meet the crew and passengers for our boat and bike trip in France. I'm wearing my swan earrings, a birthday gift from my sister-in-law Beth three birthdays ago, when we were on our previous bike and barge expedition in Holland.
I couldn't remember the French word for swam, so I looked in all 3 of our hard-copy resources. No such entry. I went on-line, and presto, cygne. Zut, alors! Je l'ai connu toups le temps. (I'm not sure about connu... it's been 37 years since I sat in French class, and I wasn't great at verb tenses even then... but I'm aiming for connaitre, meaning to know... Shucks! I knew it all along!) Cygnet is a young swan, in English...
I'm also wearing my favorite bike shirt, also from Holland.
Now we're off to find the boat.
