Les Terrasses du Gardon – During our farewell luncheon on a lovely terrace overlooking the village of Anduze and Le Gardon river, Remi and I enjoyed the Menu du jour followed by a trip to La Bambouseraie. This bamboo park designed in the late 19th century, draws tourists from near and far. There are more than 60 different types of bamboos from throughout the world, diverse oak trees and, believe or not, even Sequoias which originated in Oregon. Giant Magnolia trees were among my favorite as were the multitude of Japanese Maples all in full color this time of year. The visit was exquisite and again, many thanks to my gracious host Rémi for making sure that I saw so many interesting sites.
