Colin, Penny, Max and I walked up the half mile or so to the village to visit the Boulangerie first thing. Baguette, croissant and tartelette aux poires. No danger of starvation in France.

After breakfast we cycled up to the Observatory, past fields of poppies.

The observatory wasn’t open to visitors until Wednesday so we cycled back to Mavis, picked up the dogs and set off up the hill towards Banon.

Heading for Banon

Banon is famous for its goats cheese, served wrapped in a chestnut leaf. If you taste it in May , apparently, at the time of the annual cheese festival, you will never want to leave. However Banon was about 20km, with a few hills en route, it was a hot day and we didn’t quite get there. We ended up on this deserted provencal lane.
