First Day in St. Remy de Provence

Today we got settled into Le Petit Mas, went grocery shopping, explored the immediate area, and relaxed on the patio. Our house is quite comfortable with all of the essentials except a washing machine, which broke last week during someone else’s stay. That meant a little hand washing today until we can get to a laundromat.

The house is immediately next to the landlord’s, but we have a private garden. On one side hundreds of olive trees fill the view interspersed with almonds. The olives are big and green and the almonds are just about ready for picking. In the rear of the house there is a wooded hill with a stone ruin at the top. It is a very secluded place that is quiet and dark at night. Snails cover everything outside. They are little white ones that aren’t large enough to be edible.

Tomorrow we hope to begin painting and exploring further afield.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    This is a second posting. How weird! When I looked the first time around, there was no pix; but the second time around, here they were, including a picture of JP’s bedroom, and others that show how lovely the premises and immediate surroundings. Now you make me impatient of arriving at St R de Prov. Wow!

    There was no pix associated with this posting. But I think it is just because you have not yet had time to do more than barely settle. At any rate, welcome in St R de Prov. I hope you soon rest enough from the turmoil of the move and restart the painting/drawing process.
    Very best wishes and see you next month on the premises.
