Hey Stu -

Well, you wouldn't know it by the weather outside today ! Just finished cleaning the leaves and grime out of the pool yesterday (in t-short and shorts, mind you) and it looks so inviting slowly filling back up, that I was tempted to jump in earlier...

Kevin.
We're still in winter here in the SF Bay Area. We'll see a record for the most days of rain in March - 23 or more - it's raining now. Roses are a month behind schedule. I'm still in woolies and jeans & the heater in the house is on. Stays in the 50s for highs.

Wish we were in Provence like you. Think I'l get out the photo album & pretend I'm there. We have a great photo of your B&B.

Kevin,

I also cleaned my pool yesterday - it stays filled all year, and trust me, you wouldn't want to jump in ! It's coooold.

LOL

I loved Arles (and so does my 5 year old!) and we return there every time we are in Provence. There is a cute little train in the centre of town that rides around to the monuments, as well as the imposing Roman arena, Roman theatre, the Elysian Fields and Cafe Forum Van Gogh sites, etc. Arles is definitely worth a visit as it is a charming town and very friendly.

I noticed you hadn't included seeing either the famous 'Pont du Gard' Roman bridge outside of Nimes, nor the city of Nimes itself. The Pont du Gard is certainly impressive and your kids would get a thrill with walking across it, lookig at the centuries-old graffiti, and even picnicking by the river below. Nimes has a lot to see, plus there is a great city park there with monuments and lots of kids stuff to play on.

Stu,

I live in London and can relate to European weather in April. By the way, not to pick on your Milwaukee analogy, but London is located along the same lines as Northern Canada, but it's not nearly as cold or windy!

I understand your point and agree to a large extent; however, you try telling the GF andthe kids that it's too cold to swim!!
