Posted in france, mini trips, pia's photos October 31st, 2008 by piablog

It was a misty drive back through the French countryside… The fog was thick and heavy, revealing some rather eerie tree creatures along the way. I was able to capture a few with my camera from behind the safety of the car window – they were so spooky, I did not dare open my window to get a closer look, just in case one of them stretched their ghostly branches toward me and snapped me out of my warm comfy seat.. to get a really good feel for this ghoulish ride, click here to open a new window for the soundtrack to this post, then come back here to scroll through the images below… happy halloween my dear readers…

    Why, hello there Uncle! Hope you are having a fabulous Hallow’s Eve! And that you get up to plenty of mischief.

    Sofia – it is the same here too :-(, no such fun really. Well, not that I’m aware of. I think you have to have children, or at least KNOW children, to get to be part of the fun. I LOVE Halloween, I wish I was a part of it tonight!!

    Thanks Miss Bebop!

    thanks Nadia, and I must say, your forest walk post is amazing – everyone who reads this comment, please go and check out Nadia’s forest walk! It’s not spooky, just spectacular!

    Nancy – thanks! I had these photos amongst my images from the trip and i thought, hmm, if I put them all together, i have one rather prefectly spooky post!

    I remember one drive to Amsterdam where we got lost through the woods and it was pretty spooky even in a summer’s eve, so I truly believe this was pretty intense!!
    Love the pics!
