It is always lovely to walk into our cool cottage, out of the heat of the midday sun.

Going to Trets became more and more difficult to plan, so this morning we decided to explore our own medieval village. After parking in our usual car park (thank goodness most people drive grey Renault Clios) we walked into town along the road.

When we got to the bank Gray decided to change some money as he only had large notes in his wallet and we needed a coffee. So into our bank we strode, but where were the tellers? This bank has a hole in the wall and people who arrange bank loans etc, but no tellers. As soon as Gray explained to the woman, we needed smaller denominations in order to buy much needed coffees, she sprang into action,
She rushed outside to the hole in the wall, withdrew money from her account then she and Gray swapped notes! We have been overwhelmed by the kindness and friendliness of the people here.

So off to our coffee place, then we planned our trip through the streets. Both of us snapped madly, our biggest challenge to get good images minus power lines! I guess there will be a bit of Photoshopping when we get home.

On our travels we found another boulangerie, so bought lunch. However, the biggest find was a wine shop that only sells wine from local growers. They, themselves make wine. We bought a rose - thanks Becs and Liam for introducing rose to us.

We walked back to the car along the pathway along the river and took more photos.


This afternoon is working on more stuff for Liam - after a Nana nap!
