“Summer, heat, blue sky, and people (almost) all on the beaches!
But not all ! In the south, it’s not just the beautiful beaches, there are also trees, nature and its smells, dawn and twilight … For example, it is a city where the gardens are specially neat and welcoming : It is the city of Hyères in the Var. It is even called “Hyères-les-Palmiers”!
The afternoon is hot, but the sky that day is subtly a little leaded, gray, without the brightness of the sun; I calmly walk in the garden where children laugh by taking the little old -fashioned train, surrounded by peacocks and ducks: because in Hyères, there are several parks available to walkers, those who do not necessarily go to The sea. The sun returns and the heat with it, I go up slowly towards the Sainte-Claire park by borrowing very steep stairs. Fortunately I have my little bottle of water! The trees are wonderful! Any excited, I twirl from one path to another, letting myself be amazed by the Mediterranean abundance of this nature so well arranged …
(All this immediately makes me think of the Rousseau customs officer, this very green jungle side.) “[…]
