City Lights

We ventured out into Aix-en-Provence on Friday night for dinner with friends.

It has been so mild here this autumn - this time last year it snowed in our village. We don't even need gloves at the moment which makes taking pictures so much easier.

We were pleasantly surprised to see all the Christmas lights up and the majority of them lit.

The lights on the Rotonde fountain at the top of Cours Mirabeau were particularly gorgeous.

And a few of the little stores for the Christmas market along the Cours were open.

We were surprised to see projected images on the wall behind the Albertas Fountain at midnight.

What's all this about then?

Stopped to have a drool at the macaroon shop's displays.

And then ended the night with a few lazy mojitos. Mmm.

Hope you've all had a great weekend too!

  1. I'm guessing yours was better than mine going by these fabulous photos! Are you sure the macaroons stayed 'in-store'!?? The fountains, lights, reflections, all magical! Thank you!!

  2. Beautiful pictures! Sounds like a good evening! Too bad that store was probably closed ... those sweets look beautiful!

    Today is the official opening of the "Christmas Street" in Helsinki's centre, too. I'll try to take some pics some evening. :-)

  7. Kirsty, these are gorgeous photos. I can't wait to visit this town next year. I think my finger is going to be on the camera shutter button permanently. :) Thanks for sharing and whetting my appetite even more.

  8. You definitely had a better weekend than I did. A lazy mojito would have gone down very well here. Is 7am too early to have one?

  12. I don't think I would ever stay home if I lived in such a gorgeous area! I love your pictures; if I took pictures of my outings you would see cows and pickup trucks.

    And BTW, mojitos are my very favorite! To bad I'm working today...otherwise I just might have had one with lunch.
