The rain is gone! Hooray! The blue skies moved in around 11am and the forecast calls for sunshine and low 70′s the rest of the week. Good news indeed! We spent much of Monday walking St. Remy de Provence (our “hometown”). I bought my first three loaves of fresh artisanal bread since arriving in France. Needless to say, I am very excited! Today marked the unoffical end of Summer and as is customary, the Cowboys from the Camargue marched black bulls (also from that region) around the perimeter of St. Remy. The cowboys, on horseback, and the followers on bicycles made it very hard to see the handful of bulls that walked between them. We did a bit of shopping at a local market, picking up jambon superior (good ham – and yes, it was!) to go with one of the baguettes (boy, I could eat that every day, in fact – I might!) and some other groceries. Dinner tonight is set for somewhere in Les Baux de Provence, a mountain village set in the Alpilles (lil’ Alps) mountains. I have read that sunsets are just lovely from that vantage point. We shall see…
OWTK – live in Provence!
