Day 5 -- Rousillon

After enjoying Gordes, we drove to Rousillon.  So far it has been my favorite town.  It is known for its ochre hills, where the colour is mined.  It really is breathtaking!

 We arrived too late for the full tour of the Ochre Museum, but were able to view this exhibit.


 Shibori in France!










 Where the tour goes, we sneaked a photo!



 Every town has street musicians!




 The flag on the left -- red & yellow stripes -- is the flag of Provence.

Loving all your photos and tales of adventure, there is so much to see and do in this part of the world and all the more for the creative mind seeking inspiration.
So many colours that themes to perk the imagination.
Thanks for sharing the adventures with us.
