You have heard Tin Man speak of his love many times…….
Virginia of Bel’ Occhio’s Blog
When Tin Man started his blog one of his first followers was Virginia…a friendship blossomed….
In the Spring of 2014 Tin Man rode a train across the entire country of Canada and ended the journey by spending the day with Virginia and the Good Husband…
You can read about that trip HERE
This time The Tin Man was able to spend three delicious days with Virginia and The Good Husband..
Virginia’s home is Paris….
We had a delightful time on the front patio, surrounded by beautiful flowers…….
sipping bubbly, noshing and waving to the neighbors as they drove by…..
Then one day ………off to the beach we went…..
…but first …..the red lipstick from Theadora of Paris: People, Places and Bling…to match the cute red handbag also from Theadora….
Our Theadora, as she has become to known, lives in Paris and is another blogger who has become part of the family…
Off to a friend’s home for an evening party….
Magic and Delight abound when one is in the presence of Virginia….
Of course……..culinary delights abound…..Aromatic, Marvelous Chicken Curry…..Ice Cream with Salted Caramel Sauce…..Cheese Puffs…..oh swoon….
Of course these delights are picked fresh from the garden………
The Back Porch is the perfect place to take an afternoon nap or enjoy a good book….
A pleasant evening of companionship and conversation….
The Good Husband builds model Ships….intricate and amazing work….
Forever the beautiful ambiance and culinary delights….
Three Days of Pure Delight….Tin Man rested in the lap of Buddha receiving blessings for the journey home…
Delightful post with wonderful pictures
Thank you for sharing
John, thank you for the kind words. Virginia is such a jewel.
What a great trip! And your photos are always so creative and natural!
Dear Tinny, You and only you could recapture our glorious times together. Every photograph is a thousand stories. What was so perfect about our time together this summer is that we simply hung out. Close companions catching the television news. Cooking together. Walking along the beach and always always talking. Stories retold over the dinner table far into the night Our hearts are always with you and Augustine. Our kitchen clock is set on Emerald City time. Tin Man you have the biggest heart and I am so happy that you hold my close to it. XXOO Virginia

Pure. Absolute. Delight.
Good times remembered again! Memories like that last forever! You walked in the sunshine of the moment!

Lucky you, to have a visit with such a lovely, creative foody like Bellochio.
Virginia is such a darling, dear, lovely, creative, delightful friend. I am lucky indeed.
What fun to meet blogging friends in person! I’ve had this experience six or seven times, several of which were overseas. Thanks for sharing this.
I know that you must have really enjoyed spending a little more time with your dear friend.
