    just came back from southern France – – ummmm – – YESTERDAY! Our house is now full of lavender! Love it!

        ohhhhh…..let me tell you….we were along the coast (Nice to Frejus)….but spent a few days in Gorges Verdon…..that place is nuts! Pics are still on the phone and in the camera…but do a google image search….and you will see the craziness! STUNNING PLACE! Your post made my “day after vacation crash” particularly difficult. πŸ™‚ ahhh the memories…wish we were still there! Lovely photo!

      • Diana

        Yes……well…from Nice we drove to Castellane.(1.5 hours away) This is the town we stayed in. SUPER CUTE! They had all kinds of outdoor activities like rafting (which we did) and adventure parks. From there, it is about 1-2 hours drive to Gorges Verdon depending on the route you take. We took scenic route going…kinda scary……twisty roads, many with NO GUARDRAIL! Anyway…it was a great experience….

        Another spot to put on my travel list! I will have to live to be 110! I hope you blog about your adventure! I will look forward to it! Gorges Verdon looks, from the google map, like a national park, is it?

      • Diana

        Yes…I have a LOT of writing to do! πŸ™‚ Anyway…yes….there is a big national park right there. And I highly recommend it as a place to add to your list. It is nice because you can do a few days there and then go to the beach too…..nice combo πŸ™‚

Living with Nature

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring


Sense of place, purpose, rejuvenation and joy
