2013 Summer Paintings, Lac de Sainte-Croix and Les Gorges du Verdon

Lac de Sainte-Croix has the shape of a cross, thus the name. Its history is as fascinating as its scenery. It is a man-made reinforced-concrete arch dam, built between 1971 and 1974. So this lake is as old as me. We swim and sunbath at the beach. 

We rent pedalo (water-bike) and go into the depth of the gorge. There are small waterfalls. We jump into the water and swim under the waterfall.
