collioure, a village by the mediterranean

we took the train to the seaside village of collioure (and have yet to agree on the proper pronunciation).  the village lies along the coast of the mediterranean in the roussillon province of southern france.  in the early 20th century this beautiful village was a meeting place for many of the great fauvist painters, including henri matisse, andre derain.

found a cool english bookstore to replenish our literary stocks 
we climbed the hill and sat beneath a windmill to watch the sunset 

you can see the windmill up on the hill that we watched the sunset from

we saw some ufo's floating above the town.  no big deal.

so many jennys
