Before Everyone Else Is Up in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue



One early morning in April we found ourselves walking through the roads and alleyways in l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, in Provence. We stopped in for un cafe et une croissant, then wandered through the quiet streets before the hustle and bustle of the day. Peeking into store windows and watching the locals get the day going, here is what we saw:




a sweet topiary window display




coffee and croissant




and the newspaper to start the day




I love a lot about this window; the lamps, the table
the colors, the shadowy painting... my reflection:)




the burly gendarme and his burly dog
get their morning going




couldn't wait 'til this antiquaire opened!




General Charles de Gaulle's speech in 1940




the "general store" in town before the day's rush
of customers




the Easter delectables in the window
of one of the confiseries




what's so funny chocolate bunny? :)




this antiquaries was just setting things up on
their terrace by the river




pillow covers pieced together from vintage French
linens of many types




the coolness of cement in a shaded garden terrace




peeking in another antiquaire




a doorway of local home; the colors
of apricot and lavender I love!




a cool spot to stop and rest a moment




a stolen kiss between the betrothed!
