My son and I are leaving our small town in southeastern United States to live for a year in a small town in southeastern France. It couldn't possibly be THAT different, right?

Road trip with Erin and Dan

Today's itinerary:
Mornas, Pont du Gard, Narbonne

Our wonderful travel companions, Erin and Dan Cleveland, at one of the gates to the old town in Mornas:  The beauty of a road trip without a specific itinerary is that you can stop when you see cool stuff like a fortress on top of a mountain like we did here.

The entrance to the old town:  we felt like we were the only people left alive on the planet.  We saw one or two cats and a mail truck on our stroll.

On the steep climb to the fortress, we saw this church.  Unfortunately, the fortress was closed.

A WWI monument in the church cemetery  

Erin and Dan at the Pont du Gard, an aqueduct built by the Romans

Jed and Dan skip rocks on the river.  If Dan stands up, he will be taller than the bridge!

This olive tree was born in 908 in Spain and transplanted at the Pont du Gard in the 1980's.  It's just begging to be climbed, right?  That's what Jed thought!
