SITTING IN SILENCE

This day ends in silence at a most beautiful place called Domaine de L'Armellière. I decided to pitch my tent just 10 km from the Mediterranean. Afterwards, I went for a walk. Only 400 meters I stumbled onto this amazing property. So silent. So pristine. So contemplative. 

I started the day early leaving Hocine and the village Aramon.  

  Hocine was the perfect host.

At the first and second boat lock workers wanted pictures.

Between the boat locks I talked to a group of tourists about local piece and gave them my card. I paddled by a nice old building after Beaucaire.

I arrived Arles shortly after 12:00. 

 A quaint city with good food. Here, I ate a great meal. The serving was a bit overproportioned. But I got through it. Afterwards had a coffee and shared desert with a four Canadians from Vancouver.

 Paddled 47 km. Stopped to pitch my tent. Went for a walk and found this magnificent property. A real auora of quietness and peace. Meandered round the acres of plants and buildings and ate five different types of fruits. There is even pomegranate trees here What a serene setting.
