St. Quentin des Poteries


Just 5km north of Uzes is a small village I read about in a Lonely Planet guide.  Pottery artisans create their wares in small shops; I had no choice but to go exploring.  Don agreed!  

The streets charmingly sport a swath of tiles down the middle disguising the drainage system.

Sure, it was Monday and many shops were closed, but not all.  If this shop would have displayed those signs for shipping, I would have been in serious trouble !
