If it’s Friday, It must be France …
For whatever reason, I simply cannot download my slideshow of Arles onto this page. I’ll keep working on it.
In the meantime, join me on one of my early morning strolls through our home base of Antibes.
Our front yard.
Pass through the one original remaining gate in the 500 year-old walls that once enclosed the entire village.
Stroll the narrow cobblestone streets.
No agenda necessary. Imagine Napoleon attempting to convince new recruits to join his campaign or Picasso rushing through town to his studio.
To the other side of the old town. My favourite view of le vieux village.
Plan to end up at the daily market with an empty basket to fill.
Where are your favourite places to walk where you live? Do you celebrate your surroundings or would you rather be living elsewhere? Tell me about it.

Love the photos. If I can’t be there, your blog makes me at least feel as if I am. Thanks, Patricia!
Thanks Valerie. The post I was working on simply would not load so this was a last-minute replacement, late at night as I look after my 2 and 3-year-old grandchildren for a week … adorable and exhausting! It’s not my best but c’est la vie. I’ll make up for it on Tuesday!

I was going to say I’m hoping these photos are from summertime because if not I’d very very jealous not only of the beauty but of the warm weather in October. Great photos!
Hey Nicole – The photos are from my last morning stroll through Antibes just over three weeks ago. After living there for four months we returned to Toronto on September 30th … I may be in transition for the rest of my life! Thanks for dropping by. I just discovered your blog last week through my friend Natalie Hartford and look forward to following!

Oh me oh my how j’adore France. Your blog just reminds me why, every Friday. Thank you!
Thanks Naomi! This post was a late-night substitute when my slideshow failed to upload … several times. I’ll get it right yet! Merde!

Ah, I could look at your photos for hours. That alleyway with the flowers growing up the walls in le vieux ville, that’s where I’d like to be right now.
Where do I walk in my town? The beach. We have a lovely seawall and boardwalk that stretches several miles and I love to go down there to walk and think. Many scenes in my book have been molded/formed there.
Still, if I could be anywhere, it would be either France or England. Those to countries call to me.
Thanks for sharing your journey with us!

It’s very effortless to find out any topic on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this article at this website.
