“GOING SOUTH TO THE SUN”

A lovely visit with my friend in La Beluze …Visit to markets and family who have the loveliest architect designed house over looking The Loire ..Some amazing food and company …Thnx so much Vero and Johan for looking after us so well and getting poor Hetty fixed … Off now to Orange ..over snow topped villages past Chateau’s….One on a lake

La Clavelle… I believe

..Arriving in Orange ..which according to the guide book has a Roman Theatre ..supposedly the best in Europe ..J loves Roman …I tolerate it …sigh …actually it bores me …so we pay €19 to get in …sigh again ..well a wife has to sometime let him be ….waste of money to me …Off to Avignon …Now you’re talking …What a fabulous city …very impressed ..Did you know the bridge in the French lesson song at school “Sur la port Avignon” is only half a bridge …The town on the hill is just a tourists delight ..and for us in winter the only Tourists …Hoorah !!!!

Nice shops …trendy …and no visible tat again Hoorah !!

Now we must make our way to the south of France …ohhh what a drag ….Not ….

Magical drive through all the vineyard you’ve ever heard of ..

With names such as Chateaux Nuef De Pape ..Beaujolais… and so forth ….

Now the road sign read St Tropez ..Nice …Cannes

We need an over night stop and we certainly are not going to the coast ..all that poshness wouldn’t cope with Us and Miss Hetty so off to the forest above Frėjus …Just up the road from St Trop …J has found us a Wild Camping spot in the middle of no where

 …3 miles from the main road up a track ..GPS coords N43.46578 E6.79005 The road is closed from 8-30 pm to 6 am so let’s hope the bogey man isn’t around because we are out here by our selves in the middle of nowhere …!!!!!!!

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
