Provençal Villages, France
Interested in a Music and Markets Tour? We’d love to hear from you! Join us on our fall tour – delightful Bath for the Mozartfest!
We had our sunset Roussillon experience back in May, and this morning we’re one of the first ones to stroll the village – no shops open, the lanes empty and quiet.
The one bakery in town is quite a popular spot, as I’m sure it is every morning. An integral part of the village since 1932, it rewards those who wait in line with scrumptious pastries. Our choices? An almond sacristan for Kirk, and a raspberry turnover for me, with a couple of café crèmes to go.
Finding a convenient bench, we nibble our pastries and sip our coffees as the town wakes up,
Rousillon’s ruddy tones are even more intense, lit with the morning rays.
Returning to the Sables d’Ocre, we choose a spot to while away a few relaxing hours,
NOT the lawn, please, since the robots are mowing diligently.
Tomorrow we’ll be flying all day, today is just pleasure… and more to come this afternoon!
