1. You know, it never occurred to me that we never went into Gordes! We had so much fun (as your children!) at the Abbaye de Sénanque and the Vilage des Bories that we never missed the "downtown" portion of the trip. You are right, though – the shot form the D15 was amazing especially at the end of the day. Now I guess we must go back for the market! ~ David

  2. Quite agree that Gordes is not the most atmospherically appealing, despite its obvious dramatic 'wow' factor. Its probably best visited at night when the trippers have departed and the lighting over the gorge evokes the Cathar castles of the Aude. 'The Good Year offers snippets of each place, the pool and the pollarded trees of Cucuron, the bus shelter in Menerbes? and of course the poor benighted inhabitants of the Chateau ( whose full name will not be mentioned) since it seems they now have to barricade themselves in!

  3. SUSAN,
    What an interesting market!! Sometimes a second look at a place provides a treasure of things previously overlooked.
    I especially liked the picture of you and Towny on a stroll. That was a rare treat!!
    Was that Rob in the blue shirt shopping in the produce ? If it was, then that must have been a Heavenly Market !!

  4. Ah, there's always a reason to return! That was such a relaxing evening wasn't it? Well, okay…after so much time relaxing and relishing the beauty of the Abbaye, we did cut it close making it to the bories before sundown!
