Daytrippin’ the French Grand Canyon

Today we took a drive to the French Grand Canyon, otherwise known as La Gorge du Verdon. We started at the turquoise waters of Lac Sainte-Croix and drove the south side of the canyon, said to be the most beautiful in Europe. I even caught sight of some crazy people throwing themselves off a bridge, and reminded myself that I absolutely never want to go bungy jumping.

We were supposed to go for a walk down to the river at the bottom of the gorge and have a swim, but (ahem), we were a little late getting started so there wasn’t time, and the way back up would have been a killer.

So as we were driving out we came across a military base and saw a yard full of TANKS! I had to stop and take a photo for my little brother (can I still call him little when he’s been bigger than me for years? Well, he’ll always be 14 in my mind), who is basically obsessed with anything with an engine. And it morphed into a little banner for our facebook page too.

I had a little momentary vision of doing some kind of tank photo-shoot, but military personnel don’t usually take kindly to these kind of ideas, especially the scaling the fence part.

Here’s a photo of the gorge, nice huh?

We really would be rollin’ on down the lane if we got our hands on one of those tanks.

August Busy

There’s been a lot going on around here this month overall, but not so much this week with the hot, hot weather we’ve been having here in Provence.

We’ve written four new songs, rehearsed quite a lot, taken a few sets of new promo photo’s, worked on the cover of the album, a new poster … taken a lot of long walks, gone swimming and generally enjoyed the fresh country air.

I’m going to be sad to say goodbye to Provence, but I’m looking forward to coming back to France later in the year (not too much later) to tour and release the new album.

Bye Bye pretty French villages and Hello (that should be Ciao!) Milano
