... so we made it happen. Taking Fifi around the tiny cliff side roads was a bit nerve racking at first but people drove responsibly and so did I. We arrived in a super cute town where we got a map and some advice on what to see. Here she suggested going to a look out, then a small looped road for more views then to the main lake. The first view point you could see how vast the canyon is, breathtaking. We drove through a couple other ...
... passing a memorial to the 300+ Jews deported from the Vaucluse, including nearly 60 children. Only about 25 survived the camps. Chilling. We went back to our breakfast spot for an omelette and salad for lunch then got on a baladine and went down to the river bank where we found, among the river cruisers the small boat that did afternoon trips on the river. We sailed up past "le pont" and back again, then around the other side of the island where you ...

I liked Avignon very much, after dark street lamp posts and other lights came out; an antique carousel on Place de L’Horloge ...
... to the Palais des Papes, residence of a few Popes during the time the RC church centre was moved from Rome to Avignon. 13-15th Centuries. Watched a fascinating video of how the Palace was modified by each successive Papal chief. A bit like you do when you buy a new house, except on a grand scale.. a tower here, a new kitchen there. We spent a couple of hours there climbing up as far as we could go (a looong way) hack hack puff puff. Well worth it.
