Sounds about perfect to me Viv

I hope you included some salad for a perfect balance

I've had a lazyish day around the van, woke around 3am and that was me reading

Cooked a load of stuffed veg so that's us sorted for a couple of days

Put a load of washing in, we only wear dark colours , so all goes in together

Still in Avignon, alberts hooked on the little trains since Chartres

So we have that to do

Our trip yesterday orientated us to the town

Shadow has had a good swim and run two miles with the bike with Albert

I'd consider the open bus but we only have a maximum of 4 hrs at a time and that includes getting to the bus and getting back

But we have air con to leave him in the van , which we used yesterday

Actually we are using it a night, the campsite has lights all night, badly placed for our pitch, and maybe every pitch

If the blinds are not drawn it shines directly into our raised bedroom windows,and roof light , so we can't keep them open as we prefer

The showers here are fantastic, hot hot water, lift off shower heads so you don't need to wash your hair every time you shower

A well stocked shop, an open restaurant, open to non campers so doesn't close down out of season

Yes it's a bit tired and worn , dusty small pitches

But it's close to the old town, the free ferry a lovely walk along the river to deposit you next to the le pont d'Avignon

The other direction across the bridge into the town

I'm falling in love with it

Hi Sandra
I for one enjoy your posts, especially when your away.

I think you are at the same campsite in Avignon that we were a few years ago.
The pitches are a bit tight between the trees and we had a job to get out if I
remember correctly. The town is really nice,we loved it there.

Keep the posts coming,just hope one day we will be able to roam France for longer
than two weeks.

Just back from Avignon
Visited the Market of Les Halles d' Avignon, it has an imposing plant wall created by Patrick Blank, who apparently also created the one in Paris as well

All artisan local produce ( at artisan prices)! The spice and salt stall was a joy

Ate out at lunch then took the petite train for a tour around the old town, a very good day
The photos I think are self explanatory, I havent worked out how to add a caption

I didnt buy any salt

I like my salts unadulterated from the different regions we travel through to compare

But note in the last picture a ceramic dish

It's for grating galic and then adding olive oil to create a dip for bread or a dressing, I just knew Albert would eventually pay the 5€ for it, and he did

Now I'm not boring but mean, I'd crush the garlic to a paste with a little salt , add oil and there you go

But I now have a little ceramic garlic grater

It's only money! Little money at that! Cute though. I have a collection of singularly unsuccessful garlic crushers, but never seen one like that before! Lovely pics Sandra. name of campsite? Maybe you mentioned it further back.
