Sunrise 6:02: Off to Provence

The Dawn Joggers boarded the TGV this morning at 10:20 for the just under three hour journey to Avignon. By the time they picked up a rental car and drove to Goult, it was midday and quite warm, so they hung out at La Grande Begude, where they are staying, until it cooled off. The mas (farmhouse) is indeed grand; their rooms on the third floor are not much smaller than their home in Menlo. Goult is located within the boundaries of the Parc Naturel Regional du Luberon. They didn't need to go far for their first hike; a well-marked trail ran along side the mas boundary, and they used it to climb out of the Vallee du Calavon for some scenic vistas. Bright red poppies are everywhere.
