Today was the start of the cruise with a bus ride from Monaco to Arles (pronounced without the s ).
It was a 3 1/2 hour bus ride up the highways of France. Most of it is 3 lanes reduced to 2 lanes as we came into Arles. Native vegetation is oaks, and other shrubby trees. In one place they had planted eucalyptus trees to replace trees after bush fires.
