Highlights of So. France, Corsica, and Switzerland - 2005

The Roman Amphitheater Imagine all who have sat here before us... The object was to pluck something off from between the horns, and run out of the way to keep from being gored.
Moro makes a dive over the wall, the bull just missing his leg. The cheese course during a fine lunch on the way to the Camargue. A mountain of sea salt! (70 ft/11m)
The Mediterranean along the Camargue Monster Truck Madness!
Pick a color, any color... A pretty little store front The subject of Van Gogh
A yummy lunch.
Apricots were in season...delicious and juicy. Readying the little rider for the parade.
A beautiful celebration of traditional costume and culture. Bread and beer being joyfully toted along
The bull on the carousel looks a bit more friendly than in the Arles Arena! The nearby village of Tarascon had quite the colorful marching band.
The sausage vendor Olives to satisfy all tastes
Spices, spices, spices ... and spices
Hiking down from the Gornegrat Station The Matterhorn was our constant companion
A well-earned beer after slogging my way up to the Schwarzsee. Basking in the sun on the windswept granitic formations high up in the Corsican interior.

Fashionistas in the shadows of the common sight of structural supports between buildings. A tour boat cruises past the hunk of rock estimated to have broken off some 800 years ago. Looking out over the massive city wall, you can see why Bonifacio was virtually impregnable.
Caroline & Heidi enjoy the spectacularly clear water It doesn
The streets of the old town are narrow and full of delightful shops. Wash day...
