After “lockdown” in the United States, I could stay in the US with my family or return to my home in Uzès. It was a tough call. For the present, I believe I made the right choice. I am among the “vulnerable” for COVID-19 because of repeated bouts with pneumonia. My grandchildren in the US are back in school. In France, I can obey the virus “rules,” stay safe, expect excellent, affordable healthcare, enjoy Uzés, and visit unique places on easy day trips. Join me, Barefooting around Uzès.
Barefooting Around Uzès
Many wish they could be in France right now. I hope by sharing some of the sights and sounds around me, you will be uplifted by this place’s beauty. We may not know when, but the time will come when travelers can hop on an airplane, take a cruise, and get back to the adventures they’ve dreamed about.
Let’s get started!
Now that I”‘m settled in my apartment in Uzès, more and more new people are moving in. Those here during lockdown began what has become a new tradition: Saturday aperos at noon. The neighbors safely distanced, and everyone wore masks. Nowadays, restrictions are more relaxed among our “bubble” of friends…
European visitors invaded Uzès this summer. While locals didn’t participate in everything, many outdoor activities were hard to miss: Tuesday Night Market, cycle racing tours, and walking places where you could gaze at the beauty and the history.
Just beyond town
Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux is the perfect sized-town for a lunchtime getaway and shopping.
Pont du Gard’s Annual Luminaire
Summer at Pont du Gard means kayaking and canoeing under the historic aqueduct. Light shows illuminating the ancient monument are meant for all — the young, old, and even family pets.
Now that you want to travel, why not check out the video? Feel the “buzz” at a French antique market. Listen to the music from the organ grinder. Walk with me through the French towns and villages near Uzès.
