George’s Postcard Note: We biked up and up the Sorgue river to Fontaine de Vaucluse, one of the tiniest medieval villages in Provence, where the beautiful stream running through it, defines the village center. Bars, restaurants and even the town square opens on to it. We picked a bar with the view and set about getting it down on paper. I remember noticing in the process of drawing that the little water wheel had been left in its original position, restored without its mill, to remind everyone of the river’s once vital role in the economy of the town.
