Down south

Since coming back from our trip down south it’s been a little bit hard to get motivated again and get back into our renovations, but better to have a few days to recover – especially from our last very long day, but more about that later.

In the meantime, here are a few more pics from our time down at Hyères on the Côte d’Azur…

Did some ‘accidental rockclimbing’ when I navigated us to a lookout (Fenouillet) I found on the map.  The spectacular views were worth the effort:

Also enjoyed the sights on La Presqu’ile de Giens:
