I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee. ~Carly Simon

Saturday morning we went into Fougeres,we usually park at the bottom of town by the chateau/castle. A walk up to the old town and then after a b
rowse around the market we went to a favorite place, the Cafe de Paris.

It is for me a great place to chill out and people watch. I love the atmosphere, people sitting at the bar on their own reading newspapers, families searching for tables with babes in arms. Women chatting up the pleasant cheerful server. The deafening noise of the c
offee machine, and the general buzz of a Saturday morning. Must go back soon!!

Down town

Uptown October 2009

Do you have a favorite place to people watch?

The French word for deafening is assourdissant

To browse maybe you could say ~ Je jette un coup d'oeil.

Fabulous painting!

I don't often get a chance to watch people, but I love doing it in my favourite cafe near the office.

The painting is strong and vibrant. Love it!
I like to PW too but like LadyFi don't often get the chance. Josselin was the last place.
ps, did I tell you how much I like the painting?

Everyone needs a little favourite bar or cafe out here - a seat facing outwards to study the people going by. I can sit and people watch for hours.

I do love people watching, anywhere...

And I do like that French word for deafening...I keep repeating it....assourdissant....assourdissant...

I have a favourite cafe too that I just love to people watch. I always wonder where everyone is off to and often try and guess. That is such a picturesque photo and the painting is wonderful too.
