Big European Trip--More

Well, got derailed by the holiday season.  But I have more and more pics from our October river cruise in France.  We opted for an optional tour into the mountains outside Avignon to a famous quarry that had been converted into an amazing light show:  the place translates to Careers of Lights.  I can't even begin to explain how they manage the image projection on all the quarry surfaces, an amazing experience.  The presentation we witnessed was based on Spanish artists. 





After the quarry, we were bussed to a nearby village carved into one of the highest mountain peaks, the village of Le Baux.  I have to admit, this quaint little village was the highlight of the whole trip for me.  "Protected" by the ruins of an old castle, The village overlooks a beautiful valley (where a number of French film industry folks have homes).



But the most enjoyment was found just wandering the streets of the village.






Miriam arranged a date with a famous celebrity...


But I stepped into to quell that adventure...


Not even a little rain could dampen our enjoyment of Le Baux.
