I have been promising you pictures for awhile and I finally got them uploaded to my computer. So here you go...a little taste of the move!

This is the last picture I took in Talence, the night before I moved, out the livingroom window.

The weather was interesting to say the least on our way to Grenoble, here are a few shots of the clouds.

I thought they were amazing. Especially the alien ship one!

I didn't have much of the house unpacked when I took these shots. The only sane areas of the house were the hall and kitchen. This gives you an idea of the spaciousness of the apartment though. I took this standing in the entry hall. The hall is long and wide and lends to the feeling of a house not an apartment.

This is just one half of the kitchen, you cant see the sink, dishwasher and cabinets on the other side, but it gives you an idea of how it looks and its very nice. I love the lighting inside of the cabinet for the glasses and the under cabinet lighting for food preperation. The vitreo ceramic cooktop took some getting used to and I'm still learning how to use my oven...it even has a rotisserie!

This is the view I wake up to in the morning. I really can't complain....

These are a few shots off the balcony. This first is a big long mountain off to our right. It was a very hazy day so this doesnt really do it justice. You should see it in the morning when the sun is rising and hits it...It glows rose!

This second shot off the balcony is the private garden. It's a nice little area but since the apartment is new the trees are fairly small. It will be much more pleasant in a few years if we are still here *grin*

I also took a few shots of downtown Grenoble on our first trip there. It was rainy so we cut our trip short. In this first shot of a nice square we chanced upon there was a little market set up on the other side. If you look close in the picture across the green on the right are the tents. DH bought me some lovely soaps and a scarf there. It looks to be a wonderful place to shop or just sit and enjoy the scenery.

I love the wonderful old lampposts in this area and the lovely ornate buildings. It certainly has it's charm!

Hope you enjoyed your visit with me!
