Last day - Lourmarin and Helianthos

Hey, remember when I mentioned the fields of sunflowers over near Lambesc? Well, I should have just waited a couple of days and raved about the sunflowers between Ansouis and Lourmarin. We came upon them today on the way to the Friday market in Lourmarin - several large fields just starting to bloom - should be a breathtaking site over the summer until they are harvested. Got a few pics, but nothing to do them justice.

Arrived at Lourmarin before 9:00am - lucky to get a good parking spot. Very popular and very good market - recommend to anybody staying in the area. Thanks for insisting we go there, Barbara. We didn't need much in the way of food, since we're leaving early tomorrow morning, but we spent a couple of hours making a few purchases & stopping for a drink in the attractive and winding central area of the village. It's very hot again today.

Back to Ansouis and a light lunch at the Bar des Sports, one last wine run over to Chateau Turcan and a quiet afternoon packing & resting for our long day tomorrow.

Some of us are going to the highly recommended local restaurant, La Closerie, this evening, but comments and a review will have to wait a few days until we arrive back home in Canada. Signing off my blog for a couple of days.

Helianthos? Oh, that's Sunflowers in French.
