Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

MAUSSANE & ST REMY de PROVENCE

Date: 16th July 2011

MAUSSANE & ST. REMY DE PROVENCE

We travelled to Maussane to see a Costume Parade. It was interesting but incredibly short lived so we were glad we hadn’t made the journey just to see that. I bought a Plateau of Nectarines (25) for 11 Euros - they were the biggest and best I’ve ever tasted in my life and all agreed.  They were the size of Jaffa Oranges!

Then we went on to St Remy de Provence and apart from doing some shopping - well it was Sale time and I do find that inexpensive French clothes have so much more chic than the English counterpart. (Also discovered that in France it is illegal to hold a sale other than the designated periods in the winter and the summer)

Went to a free Organ Concert in the Cathedral. The Organ was a magnificently over the top construction. Of course the Organ was behind us - but the organist was portrayed on a screen in front of the altar. I’m not well up in the world of Organ music but the programme notes spoke very highly of Pascal Marsault - our musician for the concert. The Organ looked as though it had had an overhaul in the recent past but the remainder of the Cathedral was in a poor state of repair. It must have looked lovely when all the frescoes were alive with colour.

The impressive Organ in the Cathedral.
