Isle Sur La Sorgue and Gordes

On Sunday we went to the pretty little town of Isle Sur La Sorgue, which  sits in a split of the crystal clear Sorgue river.  Sweet pedestrian bridges cross the river and vendors line up on the banks on busy market days.  Each Sunday is a huge antiques market, and I was so hoping to find a few pieces, but left empty-handed.  The search continues.

We bought sandwiches from a boulangerie and ate them along this shady river bank.

Next we made the short drive to Gordes, which is an amazing little village perched on a cliff.

Before leaving Gordes, we sat at a table on the square with this fountain and toasted Provence.

Cheers to all of you and thanks for following our Provençal adventure!

    Hi Kate,
    After Amy’s graduation we went to the same two towns and have some of the same pictures. It was gorgeous. It was nice for you to bring back such wonderful memories. Thanks, Debbie

    So enjoying your Provencal adventure!!

  3. You should try to see an opera in a Roman amphitheater. Years ago I saw Aida complete with live elephants at the opera festival at the amphitheater in Verona, Italy. Amazing!
    Last year I toured the beautifully intact amphitheater in Pula, Croatia while it was being set up for an ice hockey tournament! I suppose it was good for the local economy.

    An opera at the opulent Palais Garnier is tops on my list for my next visit to Paris.

Hollah back y'all!
