After spending the morning shopping at the St. Remy market and an afternoon dip in the pool, Beth and I decided to make a quick trip out to Les Baux, an old fort city. It sits high up on a rocky plateau and was nigh impregnable during its occupation. Supposedly, the original lords of the castle trace their ancestry to  Balthazar, one of the three wise men from the Bible.
