France Day 11

Sunday, October 9, 2011

Today was Market Day at L'Isle sur la Sorgue, lots of shopping, foot and gifts. Great day. So very French in my mind. And so beautiful. Still cooler and windy, but beautiful none the less.

Lunch was a fun treat. A huge slice of pizza (jambon of course) and they kind of roll it up and put it in paper so you can eat it on the go. Very clever.

So colorful, stands for locals every day shopping, olives, cheese, bread, fruits and veggies, meats, everything.
But then also very flea markety stuff. Mom got a wonder chopper with two wonder peelers. I won't be surprised if we see them in the halls of crap at the fair next year. Very cool! So they play to a pretty big mix. And every French woman we saw, okay at least ninety precent, wore a scarf. So of course we had to get scarves. And we kept seeing beautiful ones for gifts. Yep, lots of scarves.
Then to Fontaine du Vaucluse. This is supposed to be where the start of a spring is. So of course there is water running through the town. It is another beautiful picturesque town.
The water was beautifully clear. And seemed to be bright green. I'm not sure if it was really the water, or just that it was so clear you could see all of the very healthy plants growing. Again, assuming they are growing so well because the water is so clear.
 We had a late, leisurely lunch on the river. Actually we just had crepes. At first I felt compelled to order something with some nutritional value, not sure why, but definitely felt that pressure. Then heard my mom order a crepe and realized I really didn't need to eat real food. I am on vacation. I can just have dessert. We watched the water go by on one side, and the people on the other. Oh, and I got ice in my soda again. Gold letter day. We then wandered up a very nice, well travelled path along side the river. Beautiful scenery.
(EDIT: And here it is. The start of it all. Down that very steep, rocky, unsafe hill.)
