IFJM 24: Aigues-Mortes

April 24

W15 4 24 IFJM 002From my journal:  “We stopped by the commune of the Aigues-Mortes (stagnant or dead water) on our way back to Marseille . . .  Our poor French has us wondering if this castle/fort was really built before the birth of Christ.  Part of the canal system (Canal du Rhone a Sete) enters through a wall.  The outside left me cold.  (Does it show in the drawings?)  But on the inside is a bustling lively city with eateries, markets, etc.  We had a light lunch of some sort of sandwich-bread-cheese concoction.”

[This day I was under the weather . . .  does it show, S & H?]

“It is not light that we need, but fire.
It is not the gentle shower, but thunder.
We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake.”
Frederick Douglas

    It looks very stark on the outside…but I’d love to see the lively inside.
