Shipping Out

More on The Voyage Out with Audrey…Had to wait until returning home to the Vineyard to unearth the Family Bon Voyage Album. The photos, alas, don’t show the glorious details of this beautiful ship such as the fine woodwork, the Art Deco flourishes. Check out that bedspread, the water pitcher next to it (below) and the pool’s light fixtures and tiles (bottom).

Oh, and that’s Little Me in pleats no less. Hard to believe that when I wore that dress on the return trip three months later, it actually hung from my shoulders with room to spare, even after all those “goûters,” the traditional snack that all children in France had  at 4pm (not sure if they still do). Ours consisted of a  chunk of baguette with a bar of chocolate in the middle.

Well, as we’ve been told, French women don’t get fat.
