Flâner is a lovely word that means, depending on who says it and when, ambling, taking one’s time, receding from the hustle and bustle of daily life. That’s what I’m doing this week, in Cap Ferret, across the water from Arcachon, and south of Bordeaux. It’s other name is Paradise. Herewith, a few photos.
