Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur

Fresh For Your Kitchen

It may be cheaper to drink the wine while in Valbonne, than to eat the grapes directly! At the height of tourist season the merchants are willing to see what the market will bear, and the tourists seem to be very willing to spend.




Gorge du Verdon

We spent a few days enjoying the summer sun and then, on one cool and rainy day, found our way to the Gorge du Verdon. A great hike down to the cold, blue-green water got our blood pumping.

This was the first time in the recent past that I have been able to actually feel cold while swimming. The tropics just have no cold water! We swam in the river until shivering, getting ready for the warm hike back to the top.
