summer vacation

I am sure it is because I am having a hard time with the idea that winter is coming, but I can't stop thinking about making vacation plans for next summer.  (we going on a short trip to Cape Cod next weekend to visit the Kreegers, and I still have to figure out when I can go see newly toddling Jackson but that's gotta happen long before next summer.)
  Every time we go visit Steven's parents on the Cote d'Azur I want to go make a side trip to the Massif des Calanques. 
 
can't you just see me on one of those boats!

From Wikipedia:
A calanque is a geologic formation in the form of a deep valley with steep sides, typically of limestone, in part submerged by the sea.  It can be considered a Mediterranean fiord.

You can only get to the sea at the Calanques by hiking for hours or taking a boat around to access the inlets.  The beaches are lovely and next time we go to France, I am going to go.

Wow, that was such a nice view! I wish I can travel there next time with my family, since last year we went for the first time to the Niagara Falls at New York. Apartment rental (short term) is the place where we stayed at for the time being due to their accommodations.

Having a having good time at Niagara Falls, the short term furnished rentals (New York located apartments) gave us the comfort and style while being economical.
