I had so many photos that I just through together a few of them. Below is a Bridge that I have always wanted to see since the first time I layed eyes on it in a book I have and it was an astonishing site to be able see with my own eyes. Pont Julien or ( Julien Bridge) is a delicate three-arched bridge that survives as a testimony to Roman Engineers and to the importance of this rural area 2,000 years ago. It's the only surviving bridge on what was the main road from northern Italy to Provence- the primary route used by Roman Armies, How cool is that!!!!! The 215 foot long bridge was under construction from 27 B.C to A.D 14. Mortar had not yet been invented, so as with the Pont du Gard, stones were carefully set in place. Amazingly the bridge survives today, having out lived Roman marches, hundreds of floods and decades of automobile traffic. A new bridge finally rerouted traffic from this beautiful structure in 2005. We must have spent a good hour here photographing this bridge and walking around it and on walking on top of it! Definitely was one of the high lights of the whole trip. I know everyone else felt the same about it and I would see it again if I could.
Below on the right side of this photo, you can see the new bridge used today!!
Pumpkin Patch in Provence! I made Ron stop the car so I could get a shot of these pumpkins.
Crates of Squash.
We stopped in this small village of Goult and walked around the town and I looked behind the stone wall of this pretty stone house and saw this beautiful yard and pool.
Pretty Saignon was kind of a disappointment. A huge Romanesque church and a handful of cafes and a grocery store with a beautiful water fountain in the towns square is the main attraction.
