I have wifi … !!! (do a little dance) …  I have added a few photos to the last post about St Sara (and fixed a few typos) and including here  some more photos from the Camargue region in Southern France.

Here are some scenes from the shops in town, which are so colourful and fun and have such a relaxed atmosphere

It was such a liberating feeling and fulfilment of a childhood dream to go riding through the marshes and waterways of the Camargue on a beautiful white horse.  I was so happy.  This is the sort of place where you could stay awhile and let the world go by.

My horse was called Nestor … but by the end he was renamed Mr Farty Pants.

I laughed and laughed so hard there were a few times I almost fell off.

It was for all the world like trotting around on a whoopee cushion.

Hasnt he got a handsome face?

He really was a good horse actually …
