Yesterday I got up at 4 am to take the plane to Marseille at 7 am. The flight went very smoothly and I arrived even 20 min earlier. Claudie and her husband picked me up and we drove to Ollioules near Toulon in the South of France where they live.

It was the second time I visited them and this year their new house was finished and looks very beautiful. The weather is very sunny and it was quiet warm, we even could sit outside a café when we visited the little town.

Unfortunately internet was out of work, probably because I was there !

I made a little collage to show you where I am. In 1 1/2 h only I went from wet and cool winter into warm sunny springweather, but when the sun disappears it is also quiet cool.

I felt a little lost without internet, couldn't use Skype, and I couldn't post either. Now it is repaired as you can see !

Love those blue, blue skies! We have rain here today. But that is good really, as I have just planted my onions. Rain will give them a drink to get them started growing.
Have a great vacation!

It all looks very inviting. We still have a couple of feet of snow on the ground. It has come lately after a very mild Winter with little snow. I am ready for a smalll vacation.

Nice to have a change of scenery in warmer brighter weather.

It looks lovely. Now do me a favor and pray that the forecast snow will stay away so I can get out of here and fly to Florida to catch my ship!
