we must carry it with us or we find it not

Tourettes Sur Loup.......

~ Tourettes-Sur-Loup ~

I set out early one morning on the local bus from Vence in the hills behind the Cote d'azure
 with a plan to visit the wonderful city of Grasse and go dab dabbing
in the prestigious perfume houses of Fragonard Molinard and Gallinard
Along the way I stopped for lunch at this delightful little medieval village
with the wonderful name of Tourrettes-Sur-Loup

It wasn't long before the heavens opened and in the deluge
I missed my connecting bus to Grasse !!
no ~Molinard de Moulinard~ pour moi

This is one of the few pics I managed to take while the sun was still smiling
I must go back!

My grandma had a mas provençal in Grasse an I spent so many happy holidays there. I particularly love Tourettes sur loup and have featured both Grasse and Tourettes sur Loup, along with many other places, in my book "Dear France, sweet country of my childhood".
The photos on your blog are really beautiful, well done.
A bientot.
