Popes, Wine and Royalty

Tony, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

Missed you guys. Had a great few days in France - staying near Arles we checked out a number of great towns of which I especially enjoyed Chateau Neuf de Pape (for obvious reasons) and Avignon (I'll be going back definitely) but also can recommend the beautiful walled town of Aigues-Mortes where we watched the bulls being run through town over morning coffee - now that is one thing Cambridge doesn't have...

But closer to home I'll welcome you into the presence of royalty - well, not quite. Stuck on a large roundabout known as Mitcham's Corner is this small memorial to man's best friend -in fact a prince's best friend to be exact. Not quite in the league of Byron's bear but notable just the same.
