Visiting French Small Towns in Provence

Thursday, we visited Oppede Le Vieux, a town built in the 11th century. It was built mostly out of stones. We hiked up to the top on sidewalks composed of cobblestones. We found a church at the top of the town that was in the process of being restored. It was quite a feeling to sit in front of the church sketching with a wild wind whipping around.
We drove on to Menerbes, the village where Peter Mayle, who wrote A Year in Peovence, used to live. It is a charming small town with many shop windows I want to paint.
