Roussillon is one of the most beautiful villages of France: the houses and the soil are red, yellow, orange and all the colors in between. The reason is the ochre. Roussillon used to be the biggest ochre mine in France.
Here is some of our guests looking pretty on the ochre trail in Roussillon:
Pic 2: Barbara and Linda are wearing their French Escapade T-shirt. That is the new model for 2011.
Pic 3: During the day, everyone chose what inspired them the most for their painting. While most of us, climbed to the top, Linda C decided to sit in the middle of the city hall plaza to paint the world go by. She was wearing her big pink hat, that makes it easier to spot her on the picture.
Pic 4: At the end of the day, we went to one of the two restaurants in Venasque, overlooking the valley. Picture 2: Jan is making fun of me taking a video of Bonnie looking for the sunset.
Pic 5: Here is the sunset you were looking for Bonnie!
Tomorrow, we go to the jewel of Provence: Gordes.
