Pont Julien and Lourmarin…

Leave a comment

Toward the end of our stay in Provence we visited Pont Julien a Roman bridge of great beauty, longevity, and no mortar. The niches you see are not for statues. When the water rises, they allow it to flow through. A testament to Roman building and engineering and why the bridge is still there for us to enjoy.
After visiting the bridge, we drove down a steep winding road to find Lourmarin. Coming toward us were about 300 Porches on a car club outing. They were having a great time flexing their muscles and power on the curves. We kept wondering about their risk taking with passing since they were coming right at us. We survived, luckily, so we could meet a cat that looked like Cliff…or at least a brother from another mother! Make the video full-screen by clicking the arrows in the lower right hand corner.
