The rain washed away all hope of sticking with our plan for today. We had hoped to drive to the top of Mt. Ventoux, the lovely mountain to the north that rises up out of the plane with its bald limestone top. But we could hardly see Bonnieux let alone the mountain, and so spent the day inside, packing, tidying, and getting ready to leave. Leave! It was not a happy thought. We had to get out at least a little, so we drove to Bonnieux for some bread, taking a road we hadn’t been on before to cheer us a little. Starting a fire in the fireplace cheered us a little more, and we planned to go to Mt. Ventoux tomorrow, rain or no.
