With Ken & Adrienne in Chateau Neuf du Pape
Thanks to all of you who sent birthday greetings to me yesterday for the big 60! We celebrated in grand style with a long and fabulous meal Martha cooked Sunday night with our host family. On Monday we drove to Avignon to meet up with Ken and Adrienne Satterberg from Marseilles. We ate again another wonderful meal in a restaurant in Avignon during a light rain. Then we wandered the city and saw the Calvert Museum. Then we drove Ken and Adrienne to the little village of Chateau Neuf du Pape near Orange where we hiked up to the ruins of the chateau overlooking the Rhone River valley. All in all a great way to begin another decade!
