More Merveilleux Provence

France

It was now October 19 and we had just finished an incredible day of driving around the Gorges du Verdon, with a feeling of having the roads around Provence mostly to ourselves. We filled up the gas tank with many euros and continued the drive.

Sadly, we found fewer of the stunning winding roads we had found the day before, but it was still great scenery. The first real stop was for a late lunch in Moustiers. Unfortunately lunchtime is strictly 12 to 1:30 in these parts, and after trying a dozen potential cafes we retired to the car, opened a packet of dry crackers, and continued our journey a little grumpy. Given the whole town is on a 45 degree slope, walking around it to find food was actually quite frustrating work.
