Picture a blue sky:)Although I said the weather suited the Game Of Thrones feeling:)
Le foggy view as we arrived..
we should have stopped earlier..there was absolutely no parking anywhere to be found at the Carrières Des Lumières..and I was told that at night..spectacular.
This is a store..when I stepped in..♥
I bought my Painting Provence book above~
A Bed and Breakfast..I had no idea..look how pretty!
Above ,a lovely store for tea towels etc..
markets have many many also..and tablecloths..and aprons and runners etc..
Provence and linen..s♥
Les Baux -de- Provence has been named one of the most beautiful villages in France and rightly so..honestly you feel like you are in a movie..that a village can be this beautiful is beyond one's wildest dreams.
It gets over 1.5 million visitors per yr .Only 22 residents in the upper part..436 in the whole commune.
It's gorgeous my friends..gorgeous.
Yet another chapter in our sweet trip..
I hope you don't mind..it's my online journal..look away or skip to the end for Dorie's delicious tarte tatin recipe.
It was drizzly the day we went..one of the only drizzly days..
the morning was quiet and people started arriving and arriving..I could meander and take photos of shops and the area w/out people at one point..it quickly changed..
Walking through this commune is out of this world.
The shops are set in stone..the views..the products..the people..
again..so friendly..I have put some photos to give you an idea.
Desserts were often included in Jacques' Formules..mine.. a few..
he adores..tarte tatin and crème brulée..
I made both once we returned.
It had been yrs since a tarte tatin..I made Dorie Greenspan's LOVELY.From her book Baking from my Home to Yours..I have 3 of her books and they are all keepers..I don't find all cookbooks keepers.;)
One thing about Jacques and I..I have baked so much in 44 yrs that he sometimes forgets I HAVE baked things that he loved..lol
it kills me when he says:"Mmmm this is good..maybe you could make some?.."
IHAVE..bless his heart;)
It's fall now..you can see the trees changing ad although it is bleak today you know they are there ready to shine and outsparkle everything when the sun will shine..
we went to one of Lucas' high school football games late yesterday..it's his first year and was told..don't expect to play in your first yr here.. so he uniforms up..goes to all the practices..and watches..
and I watched him♥
Isn't it funny how when someone you love is somewhere..that's really the only person you really SEE..there's an aura:)
A magnetism that cannot compare with even the best QB on the field lol.
