Have just had a very quiet day today here in Aix-en Provence in the south of France. 2 days of travelling and eventually arriving late yesterday afternoon after a very stressful driving session in Aix through tiny little streets and not really knowing where our accommodation was until - "are you lost??? I think you're looking for my place, follow me up the lane" ….. we were parked in the lane way we were meant to be but just not really sure which house had the 'orange walls' and then "we're on the right just past that" - whew!! Thank goodness for John (Jean!) - a lovely couple here who are insistent that if there is anything we need to please let them know. Did we need some washing done, have you got anything for dinner? No - so off Jean went and came back with a baguette, ham and some butter for us. Ever so helpful.
They have 2 lovely big black dogs who regularly stand at our doorway ready for some TLC and only wishing they could step on in!! My Scruff would be so jealous!
But as such we've just ventured down to the local markets this morning and did some food stocking up for the next few days here, then back for a quiet afternoon and rest. We'll venture further into town tomorrow and check out the local activities. Badly needed the quiet day though!
