Road Trip! Arles to Chateauneuf du Pape

As we frequently do after groups have left, Xavier and I set out on a road trip.  We have been wanting to get back to Arles and its’ recently renovated museum of the Roman world.  We particularly wanted to see the Roman boat which was found on the bottom of the Rhone River in 2003…..it dates to 50AD.  Amazing!P1400175
