The road back to St. Remy

Minutes after our time in Roussillon came to an end and we got back in the car, our daughter fell fast asleep. I quickly put a Charlie Parker disc in the cd player, rolled down the window, and drove through the Luberon Mountains – cruising through the hillside/top towns of Bonnieux and Menerbes and viewing from a far Bonnieux’s rival village – Lacoste. I have no idea if any civic rivaly really exists between Bonnieux and Lacoste, but to see these two bookend hillside towns – you could imagine some pretty heated football (soccer) matches!

The two villages look like twins seperated at birth, standing on opposite sides of a valley.

The final two pictures are of Menerbes. One is the village from the road leaving the town and the other, roadside wine grapes.

OWTK – live in Provence!
