L’ isle sur la sorgue – July 12, 2012 – Natalia

We drove into the provincial town of L’ isle sur la sorgue.   The town is a mini island with a river running though it.  Every street in L’isle sur la sorgue has its own water-mill.

This place reminded me of the Madeline House:)

We arrived in time for market day. Everywhere we looked we saw stalls selling macaroons, lavender pouches, yellow and orange pottery, and lots of delicious food!  As we walked through the town we founds lots of quaint shops selling books, clothes, pocket knifes, basically anything and everything!

As it got closer to noon, we became hungry.  We bought rotisserie chickens and baguettes from different stands at the market and looked for a place to rest.

Eventually, we made our way to the river for a peaceful picnic.    After our picnic we chose to do some more window shopping.  As we walked the charming street we found a local barber shop, resulting in haircuts for Dad and Lancelot.

Later that day we drove to Avignon and walked across the famous bridge.  Did we remember to sing?   Yes, of course! 🙂

In the evening we drove back to L’isle sur la sorgue.  Market Day brought many restaurant patrons to the town, so it was unlikely that we would get a reservation.  Fortunately for our stomachs, we found some amazing pizza and had another picnic near the river.
