Dannielle and Julian Farrant, the owners of Athos, were introduced back in February in the post Meet the People Behind Athos Luxury Vacations.
Dannielle and I sing together in Capestang International Choir, and today I was lucky enough to catch a lift with her to Marseillan where we sang in the beautiful church. Athos was parked at their Etang Port in the same town and we were invited onboard for a glass of Rose.
In good company, Dannielle’s parents and Juliet from choir were also there to enjoy the fine light only the south has to offer. Literally I could not take a bad picture if I tried. The sun was slowly going down behind the overcast sky after 20:00 that warmed up the shots, with no enhancements needed. A rare opportunity for a photographer, I realize why artists come to southern France for the light. It is simply perfect.
Enjoy the photos, and if you add Canal du Midi to your bucket list be sure to book with Athos Luxury Barge.
