Les pierres vivantes

Very pleasant light & music show earlier this evening at the chateau Comtal in the Cité. Another plus for Carcassonne’s summer entertainment program.

Bed and breakfast

I have recently met Jeanette Bajon co-owner of this wonderful barge turned into a bed and breakfast.

If you are looking for a place to stay or even a cruise along the canal for a couple of days, this has got to be the place. The barge is normally located at the Herminis Lock, 28 rue du Canal, 11000 Carcassonne.

Le Marché

The town of Carcassonne is very colorful this summer.

The umbrellas hanging over the main walking street are very pleasant and actually provide a very welcome shade on the way to the market.

We have had some very hot days afterall in July and August.

There is a certain pleasure in walking through the weekly Saturday market.
