We drive with Wes and Susan to the Camargue, a bird sanctuary and wildlife preserve on the Southern coast of France. We are looking for the flamingos and white horses for which the region is famous. We see...
Then we drive to Arles and meet Geegee, Molly, and Carolin to explore...
the ancient Roman Arenes that dominates the center of the old town.
We have a beer in the shadow of the Arena, and walk up the street for a fantastic dinner at..
"Le Bistro", the annex to "L'atelier de Jean-Luc Rabanel".
Some selections from around the table...
Everything was fantastic. We then walk around the old section of town...
We then head back to the villa. Carolin drives like a bat out of hell and beat us back. She reportedly had three automated photo speeding violations, whereas I only had one.

WTF ? i mean...
Why wasn't I invited ?
I like FRance more than you do !
I almost speak French...
"Why wasn't I invited? - hdw
Well, except for the fact that Wes and Susan don't know you, I cannot think of a single reason that they did not invite you.
If we had stuck with the original Timbuktu schedule, you may have met them there. Blame Air France. BTW - Wes is a Northwestern alum.
In any case, France likes me more more than you.
