American petanque in Provence (5)

Saturday evening.. a quiet side alley in St Rémy de Provence.
Don't be fooled by the peaceful demeanor at first sight. Here we were just warming up.
Minutes later the competition became fierce. The score went from 2/0 to 2/3, to 4/3, to 4/5, etc..
No time for more pictures: I even had to take out the compass to settle millimeter spreads!
The laughing and cheering was contagious. I'm sure the neighbors wondered what on earth was going on! An unforgettable evening.
