loveliness 202

Today we were finally able to drag ourselves out of bed before the sun was too high in the sky, and we went for a poking-around kind of hike up Mont. St. Victoire. We were rewarded there with amazing views, and tiny scrubby little lovelinesses like these...
That is black moss, by the way, and next to it is wild rosemary (yes, wild!).

Later we survived a boat tour on the wild Mediterranean... which was spectacular if blindingly hot and exposed (and I emphasize the word survived here, as it didn't always seem obvious that we would!).
Still later we shocked the French with our snow-white Canadian skin on the beach, and swam in the ocean... so salty, sandy and magnificent.
