The back of the storm rolls through the Lac de Saint Croix, the body of water that the Gorge du Verdon feeds into. The limestone lake has an iridescent look to it and I love how the rain coming in ties the blue of the sky and water together.

The thunder and lightning rolled out in full force when we went to see the lavender fields in Riez. The hills were charged, you could actually feel the energy building for an hour before the storm rolled in out of the Gorge du Verdon. I haven’t had a decent thunder storm like that in a while, it feels so good to hear, almost like the sky is cracking it’s back and relaxing.

laI found the perfect rock, it was shaped like a seat and it stuck out over the deep waters of the lake.

We stayed near Lac Saint Cessane for a week. I haven’t had a lake holiday in a long time, I had forgotten how relaxing the water can be. And as always, Kodak Gold is a great travel companion.

We rented a paddle boat to go out on a lake one day. Beautifully calm and relaxing!

We were in France for Bastille day! It was a cool experience with heaps of drunk French people. Viva la France!

Inside the Olafur Eliasson fog exhibit at the Aros art museum. Such a cool experience, moving through solid tones of coloured smoke.

You can always find one of these in Europe.

We started our summer in the rain. Camping outside of Hamburg on the way down to France was fun. I think Germany would be a cool place to visit properly some day, we are always so busy trying to get as far south as possible. And they have good food and beer!

There is a lot more to Aarhus than cool bars and cute streets! It also has one of the most easily accessible forests from a city that I have seen. 10 minutes from door to secluded swim, it is an asset that few people use.
