Goult


















Today, we visited 4 towns near each other, each one unique.  When we got hungry we munched on these little, juicy strawberries that had incredible flavor and stained my fingers pink.  The drive took us to the other side of the Luberon mountains ( very little mountains, but larger than hills).  We drove through a town called Bonnieux, and although we didn't stop, it looked like it was worth going back to.  On to Menerbes.  We got there early and it was quiet. There was a museum of truffles and wine, but too early for the wine tastings.  Next time.  Gordes, our next stop, really felt like a 12th century town as we walked through the narrow cobblestone streets.  It was crowded with tourists and funny to see people trying to navigate the streets with baby strollers.  Stop three, Roussion.  The earth, 17 shades of ocher.  We visited the quarries and left with orange shoes that will remind us of where we've been. Goult, the last town we visited, is hard to find in the guide books.  It was our favorite of the day.  We parked and just in front of us was a park where we got to watch our first game of boules or petanque.  They are really serious about this stuff.  As we walked into the town, a cat came running over and started rolling around at our feet, begging to be petted (most cats we've encountered so far are very aloof).  There were very few tourists, many hiking paths around the town, and a windmill.  We found a building for sale, but someone will have to evict the pigeons first.

Great job with the photos...they all look like professional postcards. Spectacular. All so very french (including the description of the French cats.....he he)....well..really most cats are aloof.
It was fantastic to 'see' you both last night in your oh so cute cottage. Raphie..I figured out On Demand...very easy..too easy. Maybe that's why I overlooked it..it was right in front of my eyes.
