A fabulous view and something we did not knew

Happily Claudie and Pierre had a day off from work – even mid week -  when  they so gently hosted us first week of October 2010.
So what to do?
Among 1000's of options we choosed the Sky.
Faron Telefpherique plakat
Why not?
Faron -teleferique coming down 
Risky business ?– well – it swinged
Faron - view with P and C 
What was the idea. Was it a View?  Pierre did test while Claudie awaited the result.
Faron View 1 Faron - Anna at Cafe
Faron -view 3  Faron -view 4
La plus belles rade d’Europe – agree? OK – the view from Flöien Bergen Norway can compete.
Faron -walking at the top 
We went for a Walk – 30 minutes or so on the plateaux

Faron - chappel IMG_3282
And we did visit this sacret place.

There is more on Mount Faron: WW2
Faron - memorial
Faron- bastide
It was closed when we where there, but you can see and think  your own thoughts
We went to the ZOO.

They do care of Cats, all seizes here . feed them and bring them back where they natural lives. Humans protect them in one hand, and kill them with the other.

Genette
Wiki in French
Wiki in English
Faron - Genette
Suddenly something very unespected – have never seen or heard about before.
Faron Chenette in live
Did you know these animals was domestic? Used by Farmers in Southern Europe in the Middle Age to keep the Mice away.  They now live as wild animals. Hardly known and seen.
Faron Chenette like a Cat 
Looks like a Cat – click to have an interesting View.
Faron - we had a wonderful Day -Claudie 
We were up there for splendid hours – a rest needed

Did you hear my envious scream all over here????? No, not there too!!!! Poor hubby wondered what I was screaming about.... *giggles*

I wanted to go there. That was one of the places we did not do last year. Arrggghh. I have to go there next time!

Not St. Tropez either because the hotel (and everyone else) did say that all we'd end up with was the stop in the highway - in the traffic chaos... *sigh*

Your photos will only make me wanna go there more! Maybe I'll not be able to see them... *giggles*
