Got going fairly early and headed inland for Provence. We skirted round Marseille on the coast and arrived in the small town of Vinon-Sur-Verdon mid afternoon and parked up along the banks of the river. The water was crystal clear, wide and mostly not very deep. We could see trout swimming about in the depths and a sign that read – only take 5 trout per day please!
We wandered into town for supplies and had a swim in the waterfall area before cooking and sleeping. The temperature was 34 degrees at 7:30pm, but the nights get much much colder here in the highlands.
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins
