High up on the city built in moutain.

Yep, hit a few of these.
Cycled through many vineyards.

Lots of orchards with apples, cherries, tomatoes, sunflowers . . . apples


Though not so sure at this very moment, this "taking shelter" exercise was one of the more memoriable experiences.

Earlier that evening we "scored" the window table in a tiny three-table restaurant. After a super dinner with all the courses, it came a torrential downpour. The owner of the restaurant loaned us this umbrella. Not having it, we'd've really suffered during the 150 yard trek back to our room. This jpg is high up on Gordes. Using as a shield, the umbrella almost collapsed while we pressed forward.

Well, two minutes later they are loaded on my bike.

Five Euros per bottle. Heck of a deal!
