Les Scènes du Week-end {1}

Tsk tsk.

In an attempt to give mon blog a little kick-start,
I've decided to take a page from the book
of a fun new blogger I've recently discovered,
Kayla at Exquisite Banana.
{With a name like that, you know her blog has got to rock, n'est-ce pas?}

Early each week, Kayla features "Scenes from the Weekend",
where she posts photos from her Saturday/Sunday wanderings.

Since we usually get up to fun things around here on le week-end
{& because I almost always have my camera handy},
I thought I'd do the same.

This past weekend seems like a good place to start.
My parents-in-law were in town visiting,
the weather was fairly cooperative
& there was a lot going on in Annecy.

On y va ?

A quick trip to the market on Saturday morning =
 lettuce, radishes, cheese for raclette that night, organic bananes...
& tulips!

Saturday afternoon, we drove to Geneva.
{It's only 30 minutes from Annecy by car!}
That yellow thingy shows the border between France & Switzerland.

It was a bit gusty & rainy in Geneva,
so we wandered around & looked in all the fancy shops.
I like this photo because it looks like a still from a movie
{don't you think?}

Men playing chess in the park in Geneva.

Me & a teeny tiny Fiat {love!} in Geneva.

Sunday morning meant a wander down by the lake in Annecy.
Can you see the people out rowing?

In the shopping bag?
Oranges to make fresh-squeezed OJ to have with brunch.

Delicious Sunday brunch at home.

Our after-brunch stroll took us past a protest against nuclear power.
The sign says "no action today, radioactive tomorrow".

These lovely ladies were part of the Venetian carnival 
taking placce in Annecy this weekend.
{Don't worry... more photos of that soon!}

Et voilà !  
I've decided to limit myself to ten photos per weekend
which is probably a good thing, given my snap-happy tendencies.

Speaking of, I still have loads of photos of my Back in B.C. visit 
last month that I'd like to post.
I'll be back tomorrow with another 


  1. When you get your license, you should totally get a little car like that! It's adorable. And oh-so-European!

    I love the scenes from your weekend. The market, the brunch, the Venetian costumes, the international travel...

    Can't wait for another BC post!

  2. You must have had a good week end. I love the photo of the carnival women as well as the album from carnival. I think I'd better go eat lunch now. Your photo of brunch is making me hungry!

  3. Aw, I am flattered! I love your weekend snaps. I should probably take note from you and set myself a limit as well. This weekend alone, I took over 60 photos! Alas, many were variations of the same thing, but still...sheesh.
