We’re enjoying the long Pentecost weekend over here and thought it would be a nice time to share with you another great experience I had while visiting the Vaucluse a few weekends ago.

Fall colors at the Provençal markets

 Sunny skies at the Toulon market on Cours Lafayette What a glorious time of year in Provence! I think we can say that about all of the seasons in the south of France (well, actually, winter is no picnic if truth be told…) but somehow when each season rolls around I find something new to… Continue reading Fall colors at the Provençal markets

Foto Friday… Provençal olives

 Our favorite olive stand at the Toulon market. I never could have imagined being an “olive person” before I came to Provence. Olives were generally something you found, at best, in your martini glass, and, at worst, diced up & displayed artfully next to the shredded lettuce at make-you-own-taco Tuesday.

Foto Friday… Scenes from St. Tropez

It’s not often that we venture to St. Tropez, and frankly I’m still amazed that we live in the same “department” (the Var) as this glamorous vacation spot… not to mention that before moving to France I believed this small(ish) village along the Côte d’Azur was actually a hidden island in the Mediterranean. Besides being influenced… Continue reading Foto Friday… Scenes from St. Tropez
