Tuesday we visited Cucuron market, a small bite sized gem, with exceptional quality food and confiture, as well as great finds on beautiful clothes and treasures.

Keeping market time under 2 hours is ideal for our family and even better if the area has a little open space or a water feature that the kids can play near.

After the market we headed to Canoe Evasion in Fontaine Vacluse. We canoed the crystal clear water of the Sourge River. Its source is located in a gorge of the Plateau de Vaucluse and even on the hottest days of summer it is freezing cold. It is one of the largest springs on earth, a steady, strong flow of crystal clear water, 13C (55F) warm in winter or summer.

Have you ever been standing in water so cold that it quickly starts to hurt? Meet the river Sourge. I was told that Jacques Cousteau tried to dive to the bottom and never found it. The depth still has not been determined! It was a refreshing way to spend the day.
