France, Loches, Loire

Corners of Our Town

During our last couple weeks in Loches, I became rather nostalgic. Walking through town would have me wistfully remembering our first time strolling up to the cité royale, walking through the archway with Joan of Arc’s name. Our visits to the twice-weekly market, the many trips to our favourite boulangeries, the little metal shop signs…The list goes on.

I started snapping photos of all the little details. The bits and pieces that sometimes started to seem commonplace. All the pretty that surrounds you when you live in a tiny medieval town in the Loire Valley.

There is no question that we live in a pretty outstanding part of the world, in the Pacific Northwest of Canada. Vancouver Island is incredibly gorgeous. But it lacks the history. The stories behind every stone, every château, every ancient building.

When I look at these photos, the history is staggering, the beauty undeniable. Some of our favourite corners, views, doors, and streets. And so, I thought I’d share some corners of our town. I will miss this. We all will miss this.
