Clearly Provence was beautiful.

We spent most of our time touring around like a middle aged couple taking pictures of nice villages and pretty flowers. A quick photo diary should tell the story…

Perhaps we had seen too many Roman ruins by this stage;

Whilst not desecrating graves and taking photos of pretty things we (get ready for it) ate. Hence the title of this blog.

One evening the hosts of the guest house put on a superb four course meal for all of the guests. The best of local wine and produce was in abundant supply and it was a great chance to chat with fellow travellers as well as some of the locals.

After stuffing our bellies there was also time to laze by the pool for a day and burn them.

Not too appetising.

Lovely pictures. We are going to visit Provence next year for our 25 Aniversery of marriage. We would like to have your suggestions about where to go, where to stay (budget!)
