South of France - May 1981

We stayed on a Camping International site on Presqu-Ile-de-Giens. Long coach trip there but all camping equipment was provided. The site was very crowded, with no space between the tents, but we had a good time. Spent several days exploring the local area and went on trips to Toulon and the Verdon Gorge

The campsite is among the trees in the foreground Pete relaxing - yes, the tents were very close together Jen on the campsite A view from Giens towards Hyeres View to the SE and Ile du Grand Ribaud and Ile de Porquerolles Sunset We went to Toulon where we took the cable car up Mount Faron From the cable car you could walk up to the peak (584m)where there was a small zoo and the obligatory tourist shop Jen and a friend admire the view Looking down on Toulon La Tour Fondue - the remains of a defensive fort on Presqu-Ile-de-Giens Jen and Val near La Tour Fondue Jen on the beach A windsurfer in the bay Val swam out towards this boat We went on a coach trip to the Gorges du Verdon where the river Verdon has carved out spectacular scenery There were several stops to admire the scenery The gorge is about 25 kilometres long and up to 700 metres deep Collapsed limestone scenery Jen took this picture of us The impressive Pont de Chaulière over the river Artuby Another view At times the road went through tunnels Lac de Sainte Croix Reservoir At this village, we were expected to buy our souvenirs The golden star over Moustiers Sainte Marie.
