Enjoying the French Riviera

Enjoying the French Riviera

P1070731Not done too much climbing over the last week although Jane and I have been having a great time on the beaches and mingling with the rich and famous of the French Riviera! Not exactly what I thought it was going to be nor did I particularly feel like it was for me but a good experience nonetheless. We had a great meal at The Grange in La Beausset where we shared a MASSIVE steak between two and some great wine. Right now we are parked up at Camping Sainte Victoire where we have been for the last couple of days. There is simply loads of climbing on off vertical pale limestone to be had here but as its just me and the family right now we settled for a walk up to the Col which leads to the rocky summit. At close to 30 degrees it really was too hot for our woolly dogs and so cutting short the summit we made our way back to the van to lounge around it the sun and enjoy the peace and quiet.
