I See Red , I See Red, I See Red
We are now down in the Basque Country , the scenery has changed because we are entering the area of the Pyrenees Mountains , which is on the French Spanish border . We are staying just out side a small village called St Pee Nivelle in a rural area .
There is a great love of the colour red in these parts it is a famous area for growing and drying Pimenton which the Basques use to season there food .
We travelled to the town of Espelette which is renown for there Pimenton , every shop sell it dried , preserved , added to cheese , and decorating hams , they also decorate there homes with them .
Bruce and our lovely little Peugeot even managed to dress to suit our landscape .
It was another big day , and we even managed a ride on the La Rhune Cog Railway to the summit of Mt Rhune so you could see across France , Spain and out to sea . The rail carriages were also adorned in Red curtains .
Lucky me Red is my favourite colour.
