I can’t believe how long it is since I last blogged. Changing jobs and moving house were all-consuming tasks over the last 6 months (as we opt for a more “normal” lifestyle for a time), but now that I’m settled in on both fronts I can turn my attention back to those things I enjoy doing, in those precious moments of free time.
What better, then, than to share some photos of our beloved Argenton-sur-Creuse, and the simple but satisfying lifestyle it represents to us, as we count down the weeks till we are back there once more…
Walking around town is always an enjoyable pastime.
A stroll by the River Creuse always offers plenty of photo opportunities. We never tire of this view:
And of course there are plenty more beautiful vistas!
It’s equally good to hike up the hill to La Bonne Dame…
and enjoy the view across the rooftops of Argenton, and beyond as you catch your breath.
Or wend your way around quaint streets lined with stone houses…
or up enticing alleys.
There are many places of historical interest to stumble upon, and let your imagination take you back to times long ago.
And a daily walk is a good way to build up an appetite for the obligatory baguette…
or something sweeter, still warm from the baker’s oven at any number of the town’s boulangeries (bakeries).
Ah, that’s the life! Don’t you think?
Can’t wait to be back.
