Where I stayed
Camping Les Gorges du Loup
Our trip today was to leave Gap , take the toll road to Chateau-Amoux and then the scenic road to Grasse. This road is 136km long and curls itself around very high alps. We were not disappointed at all. At times we were up so high that you felt there was nothing higher. Some of the roads were very close to the edge of the mountain, too eerie to look down even
Our campsite for the next couple of night is in a little place called Le Bar-Sur-Loup and is about 7km from Grasse. We do not know an awful lot about this city but will find out more tomorrow. We will be catching the bus to town so will see what it brings. Our American friends suggested we stay and have a look around because there is so much to see there. Will let you know tomorrow. We are presently very close to Nice and will visit the area in a couple of days. Monaco is off the list because we were informed that they are getting ready for the Grand Prix. Also the Cannes Film Festival is supposed to be on so will probably give that a miss as well. Nice will be enough for us anyway.
Guess what, for the first time this trip we are wearing shorts and T Shirts. A little cool this evening but ok.
We had a good day today with some very nice scenery thrown in. You should have been there.
