|A view from the terrace: Mt. Sainte Victoire.|
Dan and I have had the good luck of meeting and becoming friends with the lovely artist Apryl Anderson - you might remember from this post. Apryl was able to organize with Hilary of Wine in Provence (another fabulous gal!) to hold an afternoon of art, wine, and music at L'Oustau de St. Marc.
The restaurant sits at the foot of Mt. Sainte Victoire, so we had gorgeous views from the terrace as we sipped rosé, listened to Dan's music, and meandered through the easels of artwork.

Since a show in Sarstedt, Germany, back in March, Dan has always finished the first half of every performance by inviting me up to the stage to sing three songs (eek!). Even though I really enjoy going up there with him, I'm always a bit sad that we never have photos of us together - one of the pitfalls of traveling as a couple, I suppose. So imagine how glad I was when Sarah, Apryl's daughter, grabbed a camera and shot the two photos of Dan and I together, as well as the close-up of . . . uh . . . my big ole' face. She's got an eye for composition, no?
