T Stands for .......time out!

Hi everyone! As you may have noticed I have been taking some time out! We are staying with my Sister in Law and having a great time catching up!
I am joining Elizabeth for T Stands for Tuesday and there will be a scheduled TIOT post too but I'm not sure when I will be here again!
First I have a T photo for you and then a few random photos from our journey so far!
Once again Elizabeth could you please link me?

These were taken at the Cite du Vin museum in Bordeaux! A coffee stop only!
This beautiful Praying Mantid is in my SILs garden 

We visited this Calvaire this morning

We came across this beautiful garden in Loudun today too!

This beautiful church sadly wasn't open!

 The beautiful Mirroir l'eau in Bordeaux
There will be a lot more of the St Andre cathedral next week!
That's all I can manage! 
Happy T Day and Thanks for looking,Chris

I linked you, dear Chris. For once I saw your request rather quickly. I am really impressed by these photos. That praying mantis is incredible. Such detail and clarity.

I would LOVE to see more of the Mirroir l'eau (in Bordeaux). It is beautiful. I so love that you share both modern and ancient architecture. It shows the very different styles in different cities.

T looks really good. I hope you two are having a good time. Hope to "see" you home one of these days. I think you are really missed here.

Thanks for sharing some of the wonderful places you have been and your drinks with us for T this Tuesday, dear.

Amazing photos. Hubby looks like he's praying you would stop taking photos of him so he can drink his coffee. :-D And the praying mantiss looks like he posed for you. The shrine looks like a shrine not far from me. It was a place my grandmother loved to visit. And I would love to be outside working in that gazebo. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Your photos are great! We used to have a praying mantis on our patio every year -but no more. They are fascinating to watch. I'm enjoying the photos of your trip as a virtual travel opportunity :)

Happy T Tuesday
