Mont Faron

 Mont Faron from pretty Sanary Sur Mer a fairly easy cycle ride!! Map reading through the busy streets of Toulon. Age has caught up with me we now need cycling and reading glasses to find our way. This famous 508 metre high mountain overlooking the port of Toulon promised a view that was on a par with Hong Kong and Rio. The view was pretty awesome especially on this sunny hot day. I preferred the view of the pretty port of Sanary with it's buildings of pastel shades below the turquoise waters

Can you feel the heat of the day, I wish you could smell the perfume of Provence. If I could bottle it I think it would make a fortune. Warm herbs, perfumed pine and sunshine flowers. It made cycling up this narrow road a pure joy, that will never be forgotton.

Looking back down to the port and out to sea.

Round hairpin bends, In a landscape of shades that Cezanne and Van Gogh loved. 
A soft top car whizzes by, a lady at the wheel wearing a big floppy hat blowing in the wind and dressed in a polka dot dress. It could only be Provence.
