At least I found time to draw a neater rally plaque ...

Reportage en plusieurs fois ... episode 1 ORGON (Bouches du Rhone)

On s'est donné rendez-vous à la boulangerie en face le musée à midi le samedi pour faire et renouveler les connaissances et éventuellement pour manger quelque-chose. A 14h00 on entame la longue route (70 mètres :lol: ) au Musée Automobile de Provence, un lieu de rencontre pour les amateurs de vieilles mécaniques de la région. Beaucoup de voitures intéressantes, plus des accessoires, panneaux routiers et affiches d'époque - et un bar (avec grande terrasse atténuante) très sympa proposant du vin, des bonnes bières ou des cocktails aux choix.

Episode 2 Gourgonnier

En suite on reprend la route et, quelle surprise, on tombe sur le vignoble du Mas de Gourgonnier.
Niché dans un terrain d'oliviers (et évidemment de vignes) ce petit domaine produit des excellents vins de l'appellation Baux de Provence.
Il y des personnes qui en achètent :wink:
Les voitures couvertes de poussière blanche nous suivons James sur une belle route comprenant St Remy de Provence et les Baux de Provence pour arriver à Fontvieille et notre hotel.

Episode 3 près de FONTVIEILLE

L'Hotel Madaleno près de Fontvieille propose une ambiance rustique et confortable dans un cadre de verdure à quelques kilomètres de la ville.
Quelques Scimitaristes ont meme risqués la piscine ...
Arrivés de bonne heure, nous nous sommes ressaisis pour se retrouver en terrasse à l'heure de l'apéro.
Suivi d'un magnifique repas dans le restaurant, une soirée à savourer.

Le petit matin Xavier & Fred R sont debout tot pour fumer une clope - et prendre des photos.
Tout le monde profite du superb petit déjeuner et à 10h00 ça recommence ...

Episode 4 Les CARRIERES DE LUMIERES aux BAUX-DE-PROVENCE

Après un superb petit-déjeuner décontracté nous reprenons la route vers les Baux-de-Provence, un beau village assez connu mais notre destination se trouve en dessous - les Carrières de Lumières.
Impossible de comprendre sans être là-dedans, des images dansantes sur les parois rocheux de 15 mètres en hauteur, et sur le sol, et accompagnées de la musique ...
époustouflant !
Programme sur deux thèmes durant une heure, et pour la séance 'Flower Power' carrément psychédélique 8)
Il y a une video mais il faut l'imaginer en cent fois plus grande https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUSSMZmFKoA

Episode 5 la Table du Meunier FONTVIEILLE

Avec les têtes qui tournent nous reprenons la route à Fontvieille où le patron du restaurant la Table du Meunier nous attend dans la rue pour nous montrer l'entrée très étroite du parking - et pour nous accueillir de façon la plus chaleureuse.
De l'apéro au digestif en passant par les délicieux plats de la région on s'est régalé, et le service animé continue jusqu'au mi-après-midi quand on décide finalement de partir, avec des grands remerciements à la famille Mason - qui dit qu'elle pourrait récidiver l'année prochaine.
Vivement 2019 ...

English version !!!
(You can take the photos as read 8) )

SOUTHoFRANCE SCIMITAR SORTIE 29-30 september 2018 in the Alpilles

Photo report by Chris Johnson & Fred Rambert

We met at the bakery opposite the museum in Orgon at noon on Saturday to make and renew acquaintances and possibly to eat something. At 14:00 we started the long road (70 metres) to the Automobile Museum of Provence, a meeting place for lovers of old machinery in the region. Many interesting cars, plus accessories, road signs and vintage posters - and a pleasant bar (with large terrace attenuante) offering wine, good beers or cocktails to choose from.

Interesting visitors at the Museum included six Scimitars, most models represented except SE5/a, and with two GTC's, that's about half the GTC population of France.
Coupé Audrey & James Mason, SE6a Francis Martin, GTC's of Ros & Phil Mason and Chris Johnson, SS1800ti Giulia & Charles Gevaert, Middlebridge Fred Hermand, Mazda MX5 of Xavier Audiau (Scimitar SS1) and Fred Rambert (SE5, SE6a and SST), Daimler V8 Josette & Louis Guigoz (ex Middlebridge). And a very tasty Mustang.

Then we took the road and, what a surprise, we came across the vineyard of the Mas de Gourgonnier. Nestled in a field of olive trees (and of course vineyards) this small estate produces excellent wines from the Baux de Provence appellation.There were people who bought some wine ;-) The cars covered with white dust we followed James on a beautiful road including St Remy de Provence and Les Baux de Provence to reach Fontvieille and our hotel.

Hotel Madaleno near Fontvieille offers a rustic and comfortable atmosphere in a green setting a few kilometres from the town. Some Scimitarists even risked the pool ... Arrived early, we pulled ourselves together to meet on the terrace at the cocktail hour. Followed by a wonderful meal in the restaurant, an evening to savour.
Early in the morning Xavier & Fred R were up early to smoke a cigarette - and take pictures. Everyone enjoyed the superb breakfast and at 10:00 it started again …

After a superb, relaxed breakfast we headed back to Les Baux-de-Provence, a pretty well-known village but our destination was below - the Carrières de Lumières. Impossible to understand without being in there, dancing images on the rock walls of 15 metres in height, and on the ground, and accompanied by the music ... breathtaking! Programme on two themes for one hour, and for the 'Flower Power' session, downright psychedelic. There is a video but you have to imagine it a hundred times bigger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUSSMZmFKoA

With heads turning we took the road to Fontvieille where the boss of the restaurant la Table du Meunier was waiting for us in the street to show us the very narrow entrance to the car park - and to welcome us in the warmest way. From the aperitif to the digestive through the delicious dishes of the region we feasted, and the animated service continued until mid-afternoon when we finally decided to leave, with great thanks to the Mason family - who say they could do it again next year. Here’s to 2019 ...
