    Love your blog!!

  20. Yesterday I ate in a more than delicious French restaurant in Montreal called La Porte (The Door). The name of the restaurant is in reference to a fabulous old door they purchased in Morocco. It has the same presence that the beautiful views you offered us. The architecture is splendid.

  21. Hello Erinn! It would be awesome to have you visit India! 🙂

    Ah…so it’s a painting! 🙂 Thanks Terri!
    And welcome to An Indian Summer!

  22. The picture on my post was a painting by Robert Genn, who is Canadian, I think…thanks for reminding me, as I forgot to put the reference!
