Victoria College alumni summit in the Var, Rose tasting in disguise

Sorry about the photos, still working on why Julie's great photos only half loanload to my computer. These are the best that I can do for now.

Tom & Julie made it to Chez Tiffer and settled in very quickly. Alanea says that she is writing this post since I'm too young to remember those good old days.

With good friends you can just start talking as if no time had gone by....that's exactly what happened lots of talking in between rose tasting. Tom and Dave could hardly get a word in so they resorted to driving "the girls" up steep roads to scare them.....didn't really work but it gave us something else to talk about.

We had a wonderful, too short visit. We hope they will come back next year for longer. There are so many more places to explore together.

PICs to follow, problem with compatibility of Julies camera and my software

That's me!!!!

Gorges du Verdun

Dave, Alanea, Pierre, Claire and I went for a drive to the Gorge which is the Grand Canyon of France. We drove a total of 217 km and saw lots of things. The roads were very narrow and winding but I did not get sick. Pierre drove and Dave navigated when Claire and Alanea were not telling Pierre what to do. There was a bungy jumper jumping from a bridge which was 190 metres high, crazy.

Dave with new bike in front of wagon full of grapes

On this ride Dave had the group stop while he had this photo taken. The grape was very sweet as was the ride.

Pizza in France

This is an authentic French pizza made by Dave in our new kitchen.
