WALKING JARNAC


Parts of it. There are plenty of walks around town. Since I am usually the first to get up, it`s me taking out the dog for her morning walk. An urban walk that is. Not too much green space, unless I choose to go along the river over to the park. 

Urban walks in an old town are very different from suburban walks in North America. In Vegas for example our neighborhood though nice, was very uniform, cookie cutter looking. Not really visually stimulating at all. Threw the dog out the back yard (all 30m2 of it), be done.
In small town Europe it`s different. I don`t get tired of looking at all the different styles of houses and monuments, there is always something going on. 
Vendors setting up at the market, delivery men rolling in cart loads of boxes, stop at the Cafe down at Place du Chateau for an Espresso and much more.

Jarnac is far from a bustling town, so I can let the dog walk off leash without worrying too much of her being run over. Plenty other dogs around, so it`s almost like a walk inthe park for the dog I guess.

Lucky, lucky you. Jarnac appears
to be a great town...so smart of
Victoria to suggest a townhouse.
I've lived in cities and love
stepping right out the door into
all the hustle and bustle
especially early in the morning.
Will Isabella be going to school?

Bon Jour Sheila,

yes, Isabella will go to a real school this fall. We got a tutor going right now, so she is into basic words and stuff, but it will wake her up a bit...

Hi Ken,

with Cognac, Angouleme and some other places close by, the Charentes are worth a visit.
