Provence


Time to recharge our vitals, so a night on a campsite was required, this time in Avignon
The site was Ok with great showers and ability to get some washing done


This is Gordes, stunning to say the least..




If youve seen the film "A Good year" with Russell Crowe then you'll recognise this roundabout and a certain yellow Smart car


A real surprise also was to find the restaurant round the corner where he helped "Fanny Chanel"




Late evening in Gordes, still beautiful in January



The light here is superb as they all say it is in Provence, we will return in warmer times to enjoy it to the full and listen to the Cigales


Menerbes, a great hilltop village to discover


I see no ships!




Us on a good day..
The trick will be to get thinner and darker, quel chance!
Give us three years and an international wine shortage and I'm sure we'll do it..



Oppede Le Vieux, very old, very steep and uninterested in opening up its cafe for crazy winter tourists
