MV Maribelle was moored just outside the city wall of Avignon

Right by the ‘Avignon Eye’

We enjoyed a walk round the city and a coffee in the square by the Hotel de Ville

In the afternoon we visited the ancient Roman aquaduct, Pont du Gard

Then we went on to the lovely old town of Uzes with its ancient tower

Narrow alleyways
and picturesque market square

We spent a pleasant morning wandering through the narrow streets in Arles

We found what calls itself the Yellow House, but not the original where Van Gogh lived as that has been demolished

Then in the afternoon we went on a tour of the Camargue. We saw some of the famous white horses, not running and prancing as one imagines, but quietly nibbling the grass

We saw flamingoes and storks but they were too far away for a photo. But we did see some of the black bulls, looking rather lazy in the afternoon heat
