FRANCE HOLIDAYS WEEKEND REVIEW

On  Saturday morning we quickly went to buy two beach chairs because we wanted to have a lazy day and take some sunshine. I also bought a suncream but didn't notice that it was one with glitter ! I didn't even know that such cremes existed. When I had put the cream on my skin, Claudie started to laugh because all parts of my body, face included glittered in the sunshine ! And while we were enjoying the sun, her husband built a flower pot.



When it was finished I asked him to make my coffin, because he is really very talented !




Late afternoon we drove to the Sanary habour for a drink and watched people, there was a wedding photo shooting going on. The bride looked very pretty.

Before going to bed I tried to get rid of the glitter ! I scrubbed and scrubbed, but the next day I still had some glitter on my arms ! Apparently I will glitter during the whole stay ! 

The next day we went together with Claudie's sister and husband to a stone quarry in Baux.



Inside was a light show with paintings of Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Michel Angelo. Before we entered the quarry, we had a nice picnic outside.

The show was amazing. Paintings of these painters were projected against the walls ! It was very impressive.



After the show we climbed up the mountain leading to the little village Baux, nestled in the mountains.



It was a very picturesque village with cobbled stones lirom ttle restaurants and bars and lots of souvenir shops. From high above we had a wonderful view into the valley.

After a coffee and  an ice cream we returned home. Wh at a wonderful and interesting day. I will write more about this stone quarry and the village Baux once I am home again.

My husband hates glitter . Its a devil to get rid of.
The sand in Hawaii is the same. Took me over a month of showering.
Those painting must be wonderful I remember seeing them In NY and Chicago and Montreal.

Go ahead and glitter, Gattina! It suits your personality. That's a charming village ... sounds like a lot of exercise getting up there .... ice cream was a good reward though (and so was the beautiful view of course). I'm look forward to reading more about it later.

Enjoy the rest of your vacation.
