A TOUR AROUND THE EMBIEZ ISLAND



Claudie's daughter Melissa learned for her exams and I found a way to cover my screen with table sets so that I could see something despite the sunshine. I took these pictures outside of her apartment where she lives for the moment until her house is finished.



In the afternoon we went to Embiez had a drink there before taking the boat to the island which belongs to the Ricard family major producer of the famous anis flavoured liqueur "Pastis"



We took a little train around the very beautiful island and stopped the grave of Paul Ricard who bought the island in the 50th.

Such impressive scenery, and I think your hosts are making sure you see it all. What a good time you are having.

All that lovely sunshine and beautiful scenery. The tour of the Ricard empire looks interesting too. I remember Pastis being served in hut-like bars in rural West Africa. Now I know where it comes from ! Have a wonderful Easter weekend, Gatttina. (((hugs))) Jo

The Paul Ricard is well known in Italy too for its liquor's brand.....and I just LOVE pastis! Tested the first time after reading a Agatha Christie novel in which Hercule Poirot drank it and I fell in love....
