tri-generational trip to Annecy

When Susan’s parents were here in June we took a drive up to Annecy for a day.IMG_2341

Annecy is a picturesque little city on the shores of Lac Annecy, with mountains rising up all around it, not far from the Swiss border.  It has canals, plane-tree lined streets, a huge green parc right next to the lake and a city centre that has basically remained the same for the past 500 years or so.

Of course now ye ole’ shoppes selling coal, miracle cures for the plague and indulgences have been replaced by ice-cream, high-end bike stores and touristy-kitch …but still.

It was a beautiful warm day, and Grandpa treated the kids to ice-cream as we wandered through the labyrinth of windy little streets that make up centre ville.

Days like that when we feel pretty fortunate to live where we do, and get to experience what we can – especially when we can do it with family despite living so far from them.
