#1: East from point

(visited by David Coombs and Kate Johnson)

06-Sep-2017 -- While staying for a couple of days in Provence, my trusty GPS inexplicably led us to this point. Maybe I HAD entered the coordinates etc but Kate did not twig till the machine told us to turn off Route d'Althen onto an "alley" (farm track).

Anyway the visit was only 20 km out of our way as we had been visiting the Fontaine de Vaucluse. We drove up the farm track and to the end of the field and then walked along the side of the field to the point. As mentioned before, the point is very close to the edge of the field, so no need to damage the young crop - although this was rather thin at the edge anyway.

Did the dance, took the pictures and then back to the car and the hotel near Baux-de-Provence. We did not meet anyone, although a young woman walked along the farm track with two dogs. One of the easiest CPs!
