Lavender Fields

We went for a drive down the "Lavender Road" on the afternoon after the morning of the market in Apt. 
Lavender has to be harvested when the flower is at its peak in color which happens to be in late July, early August depending on elevation. Our trip was in perfect timing!

 Every afternoon we had to take a break in cafe to watch the Tour de France. 
It was hilarious to have to find a cafe and to sit there for an hour or two.
But quite necessary as since we never ate dinner before 9pm! 

We were all relaxed as we could be by the end of the day since the air was filled with lavender. 
It was like floating through a bubble bath in a car-it truly was amazing to see.
