Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Peaceful

….thanks to Cee for hosting CBWC https://ceenphotography.com/2022/06/02/cbwc-peaceful/

Walks in the park, along the beach and past the marina are all peaceful to me.

People Watching – A Fan of……#158

….thanks to Jez for hosting A Fan of……https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2022/05/30/scurries-fan-of-158/

I love seeing photos of people going about their normal day but I’ve always been intimidated about taking photos of strangers on the street. On the weekend when I was taking my camera for a walk I discreetly took shots of people enjoying the sunny and warm day.

A Quick Stroll After the Rain

….walking through the neighbourhood streets

It didn’t look like I was going to get a walk in today but the rain was short lived. When the showers subsided I decided to take a quick stroll along some of the streets in my neighbourhood. The gardens are really starting to come together and the colours are wonderful. I’ve noticed that there is a campaign against hate and some lawns have signs denouncing hate and a number of windows have neon hearts prominently displayed where passersby can see them.

My Morning Tuesday Walk

…..a little windy and cooler today

Despite the chilly winds, especially when the clouds pass over the sun, it was a beautiful morning for a walk and taking photos. I love the colour of the sky on mornings like this and how it reflects onto the water. Let me take you on my walk through my photos.

The Food in France

…..we’re on a culinary adventure

Before venturing out on this trip I lost 12 pounds. I’ve been walking anywhere from 10 000 to 16 000 steps every day. Both these things are good because the food here is amazing. There are cafés everywhere and boulangeries and patisseries on every street.

Right below our apartment there are at least five outdoor restaurants and across the street there are five more.

The market is about a ten minute walk from our place and it takes us through a lovely treed boulevard.

We’ve quickly learned that a lot of shops and/or vendors here don’t open on Monday and Tuesday, especially smaller places. Larger main stream stores are open all the time. Here are just a few delights from the market.

Paté de Pacque….an Easter specialty
The best croissants in town
…..and of course coffee
…..and lots of wine
