St.Remy de Provence
On the last day of our workshop we traveled to St. Remy for their market day. The town was very busy with shoppers and merchants filling almost every square and passage way. However, the old section of the village was less crowded and I was able to find the small bistro storefront I painted from my friend's photo several years ago. It was amazing to actually stand in front of Bistro de Marie and peer inside the windows. The bistro was located down a shady winding side street and when I took some deep breaths to calm down my excitement at finding the bistro, I smelled the spicey scent of the market. I definately hope I can conjour up this memory when I am wait ing line at Costco next week.
