Yearning for Briare: #FridayFictioneers


A long Easter weekend is the perfect excuse to get away from our frenetic Parisian life.

Pierre has meticulously chosen Briare, as our destination. I can’t wait to lay my eyes on Canal de Briare, the oldest canal in the world that runs almost thirty meters above the spectacular river Loire.


Our train journey is uneventful and incommunicado. We mostly gaze out of the window. The beautiful French countryside is our redemption.

As we disembark at Briare we are greeted by the streaming, golden sun.

“I’m dying to explore.”

Pierre pulls me into his arms and whispers seductively, “First check-in, then sight-seeing.”




Written as part of the Friday Fictioneers challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details HERE). The idea is to write a short story of 100 words based on the photo prompt (above). Photo Prompt: Sandra Crook.

    I am happy for her since I really like the great partner/ lover in Pierre. Vacations are more about spending quality time together without an alarm clock . Sight seeing can wait.
    Lovely story, Natasha.
