It has been busy since my cousin Judi arrived Tuesday, so there have been few photos and little time to do a post. It has been raining and storming off and on since Tuesday, as of this afternoon it appears as if the weather will clear. At least that’s the weather report from the Saint Remy Tourist Office! Yesterday was market day so we enjoyed a stroll through the market and did a little shopping. Today is laundry day, but this evening we are going to a Django Revisited jazz band concert. This is one of premier events of the jazz festival this weekend.
Looking back at my posts, I realized some photos were missing. Last Saturday evening Jean and I attended an organ concert in the huge Romanesque church on Place de Republique. They have a large and very fine pipe organ that the town highlights with free concerts on Saturday evenings during the tourist season. Frederic Munoz was magnificent! His program was a mix of 20th century and classical music, Cabezon, Chapelet, Cabanilles, Godard, Bach, Racquet, and Corrette. The church has a large projection screen so you can watch the organist’s hands and feet during the concert. What a treat! We are going again this Saturday when a different organist is doing an all Bach concert, including The Goldberg Variations.
Tomorrow we get a new refrigerator in the morning and then we are off to the Camargue Bird Sanctuary to see the flamingos, herons, and mosquitoes.
