Dancing in the Luberon

Reblogged from the Torygraf

The square in Lambesc was filled with music and as the band played it appeared that the whole of the village had turned out and were dancing with abandon. We bought luminous bracelets and crêpes for the children and jugs of rosé for the adults and chatted and danced the night away under the twinkling lights strung beneath the trees. Later we walked home carrying tired but happy children. The next day we drove through the Lubéron and stopped to have lunch in the dappled sunlight. I heard a cork pop and thought to myself – does life get better than this?

Art in Haute Provence

This shot was taken a few days ago during our wanderings in the Haute Provence.

What took my eye was the artist (name unknown), the same hand painted a similar image on the cooling tower of the power station at Bollene. State sponsored grafiti? If I ever find out I'll let you know.

Sometimes we need good news

Nothing to do with Provence but it's nice to share some good news sometimes don't you think.

Fabulous secret valley

Provence reveals more wonderful places to us every day. On a warm and sunny November morning we set off north up climbing through the Vaucluse hills up to Sault with Mont Ventoux in the distance, lower slopes ablaze with autumn colours.

Continuing north we crested the Col du Negron and stopped, breathless at the sight below us.

The Vallée de Jabron.
