Down hill we went through Caromb a larger, but still very pretty, village with an awesome view. It is truly stunning from a distance. Road D13 tooks us directly down to our destination for the day in the town of Carpentras. Carpentras was a bit of a let down as it lacked the charm of the previous towns but the hotel was more reasonably priced, it was 499 euros a night in Crillon le Brave. You would have to be quite brave to spent that much if there was any chance Yoly would find out.
This is an Abri, just like the ones described in Yoly's guide/story book. They were used by shepherds back in the day if they got caught out in a storm with the flock.
This one apears to be quite robustly built.
Hey, there are sheep across the road.
One of the old gates to the village St. Didier
Yoly thinks this would be a nice house with a fountain in the back yard.
Mount Ventoux beyond the vinyards.
There is still lots of snow up there so we are going to stay down here.
On a clear day you can see Avignon, it was clear enough to see Carpentras and Orange, the destinations for the next two days.
That is Caromb across the first valley.
Church in Crillon
Looking back with a full belly and happy memories, it's all down hill from here.
That was Crillon for us.
Part of the route through Caromb.
Aquaduct at Carpentras, we got a look down into the aquaduct one time and decided not to drink the water in Carpentras, generally the waters are crystal clear in the aquaducts but the one to Carpentras looked a bit muddy, maybe because of recent rainfall.
