Rauchemaure to Avignon
The second picture is a small shot of the Theatre antique d'Orange, north of Avignon. We went into the city of Orange and walked around the square dominated by this first century roman amphitheatre. Pretty amazing.
The third picture is of, well, oranges. We have arrived at our first gite on l'Ile de Barthalasse about 15 minutes outside of Avignon. We are way way out in the countryside on an island in the mouth of the Rhone River. But we did go shopping before we got here!
The last picture is taken out one of the windows in the gite...it's the only one with bars but I thought it was kind of fun!!!. It is of a huge orchard....in fact, the house is surrounded by orchards. The family dog, a kind of pointer, has a one-month old litter of 8 sweet puppies. Note to self: no, I can't bring one home!! It was windy and stormy last night but lovely and warm.
I'm hoping to get my paints out this afternoon.
