L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France

We have begun part two of our three part trip with arrival here in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue in the Provence region of southeastern France. Located centrally in the Provence region, we chose this town as the base for our visit to the area.

The Sorgue River flows through, under, and around the town and historically served as both a source of water, food, and industry powering multiple waterwheels. They have a popular Sunday market that originated in the late 1500's (and a smaller Thursday market also - more on that in a future blog post).

Our first evening in town it rained like crazy but made for an interesting view out the window of our apartment onto the glistening street below.

Out and about the next morning, I  saw a pack of wild but well-behaved dogs in the neighborhood who weathered the storm quite well......

...and also a donkey, pink sheep, deer, and even an alligator! 

This dog seemed to be keeping watch on the wheel barrow in case someone tried to carry it off. I think this is going to be a fun place to live for the next few weeks.
