Thanks to Grandmere and Grandpere we were now on our way towards Grenoble and ultimately, Annecy. Annecy is the Capitol of the department of the Haute-Savoie, it is situated on Lac Annecy and is a very picturesque french alps town. The areas we visited were near the canal Thiou, a charming area made up of shopping streets restaurants and a very lovely park. We visited the Cathedral of Saint Pierre, Chateau D' Annecy and the rue Saint-Claire. It is really great to just take the time to wander this area of the city and maybe take a leisurely stroll around the lake. On this particular day there were lots of people out and about since it was, we were told, the first nice day since winter began. It was probably in the 50s and really perfect for just strolling around and stopping in a cafe or patisserie. We stopped in a patisserie and participated in the french tradition of the gouter, or late afternoon snack, a delicious pain aux raisins for me and a picture perfect tarte abricots for Dani. The French also really love their pets, taking them where ever they go. Such a charming place to visit, we thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely afternoon in Annecy!
