The Eagle has landed!

This short toed Eagle had its eye on something, perhaps some Sanglier! it circled riding the 
thermals for some time just in front of our house.

A Must do if you are in Provence

We visited one of the two parts of this art exhibition in Aix en Provence yesterday.
Celebrating Marseille-Provence being the capital European city of Culture in 2013  the exposition celebrates and displays an array of paintings from many of Provences most influential artists including Matisse, Picasso, Cezanne , Van Gogh and Bonnard to name but a few.

The exhibition is divided between Aix en Provence, a day out in itself , with its fabulous shopping and restaurant choices and Marseilles, again another vibrant city well worth visiting. We shall be going to the Marseilles part of the exhibition in a fortnights time.

Running until 13 October its a must see  if you are in Provence.
