Family Vacation, Day 5

This day started little earlier than the day before in order to reach one of the markets shortly after it opened.

The town of Gordes

Delicious cheeses!

Ezra loved smelling all the different kinds of soap!

Colorful pottery!

These is a house built & inhabited long ago by people in this region. It seemed like it would be cool in the summer & possibly warm in the winter, but without any windows, it was really dark!

Poor girl was so tuckered out from our morning at the market (& her nervousness of her leg getting bumped) that she fell asleep mid-snack still clutching her bag of chips!

Sénanque Abbey near Gordes

This funny vehicle was parked next to our car & we all assumed it was being driven by a young man, but thanks to Audrey’s extended nap I was there to see a couple in their 50’s come, pull themselves up into the cab & drive off! The fun things you get to see when you travel!!

Time for our market lunch: comté cheese, cherries, olives with provencal seasonings, olive tapenade, crusty bread, & a sausage that I would pay good money to have again that also had figs in it!! This was a lunch to rival all other picnic lunches!!

Audrey was happy about lunch!

Next on our sightseeing tour was Roman ruins in Vaison la Romaine

The church in Vaison la Romaine

More lavender as we continued our drive!

Our last stop was a Huguenot museum in Le Poet Laval as our friend is interested in their history. Micah, of course, was happy to go along! The wife & I sat in the car & knit! 

I forgot to take a picture of our dinner, but we enjoyed wonderful thin-crust pizzas on a quiet street in Grignan.
