Provence, 2004


The young fellow pictured is my nephew, Noah, who came all the way from Seattle, Washington to Provence to cook his uncle a birthday dinner on October 12, 2004. He was prepared to cook anything in his chef's repertoire from his extensive training and I ordered hamburgers. May I say how excellent they were.

The other pictures are from the region around Vaison-la-Romaine in Provence. As always, click to enlarge.

The photographs are all by Nancy. The mountain is Mount Ventoux' highest peak in the neighborhood, taken from Le Crestet. The church bells are at Le Crestet, I think. I don't know where the stairs are but they appear to have gotten a fair amount of use. What do you think of the color of these shutters? Would this work in Leran? Stay tuned for some pictures of the canal boat tour of the Canal du Midi later on that same year. As always, comments are appreciated and will result in more frequent postings.

Noah is leaving tomorrow for 2 or so weeks for Vasion and he'll no doubt visit Leran and then to Italy, all to taste wine.

I think the red shutters were Seguret, right?

Im not happy with this pictue, so I am sending you a picture that is more "represtative" of this trip.
Like my mom said, I leave tommorow, wine wine wine. I will take pictures and send you some messages, maybe I will even get a coveted guest blogger spot! We'll see...

Luke thinks the "cardinal red" shutters are "splendide" (did I spell that correctly?)! How do you think the mayor of Leran would feel about them? You would have to choose a very pale neutral color (white, cream, very pale gray)for the walls so the shutters could be exhibited to their full glory! No other house on the street would be able to compete with such "colorfulness"! AND...it would be easy to give directions to "the house with the rouge shutters"! "Rouge" reigns!
