Our first stop on our trip was at Hyères, and it was a cold and windy day. The trip there was eventful enough going by the sea and seeing the waves raging..but it did not prepare us for the visit we were to have.
After clearing a path we could see what the old buggar was talking about a beautiful castle of old in ruins, quite lovely. We headed in it's direction only to be bombarded by wind that could equal a hurricane! At times it was difficult to walk and we were blown backwards! Here is a pic of Nicholas and Abigail taking a breather from walking against the wind as well as clinging to the rock for dear life for fear of being blown down the mountain.
Finally after we made it to the peak of this increasingly steep mountain we did get a wonderful view of the city. We took some time to enjoy our find...not even sure if the place had a name or not but it was more the adventure of having found the place and getting there than the actual place.
And when finally walked back downhill, who do you think was there waiting on us? That's right! The same little old guy. Quite content that we followed his directions...we neared him and I went to say thank you for the treasure we'd seen but he was content and he went back into his house and never popped back up.
