L'Isle sur la Sorgue

I have blogged about the town of L' Isle sur la Sorgue before but it is one of my favorite towns anywhere.  Its located in Provence, France some 25 miles from Avignon.  The Sorgue River surrounds the town and canals cut through the town.  It is an antique center, it has a beautiful Cathedral and it has a wonderful and colorful market.  Apparently there are two market days each week.  I think the Lovely Sharon and I were at the market on a Thursday.  Here are some photos I took of food offered at the market:

Here is a photo of one of the Canals

This is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken:

I am ready to take the Lovely Sharon go back to L' Isle sur la Sorgue, to see the colors, smell the aromas and watch the people
