VISITING TOULON - FRANCE

Wordless Wednesday

*******

On my third day with Claudie, we visited the beach and the harbour of Toulon which I hadn't seen yet.



It was really warm like in summer



Chilren built sandcastles at the beach, the sea was blue and we sat at the seafront, listen to a man who played on his guitar and had a coffée.


Then we returned to the center of Toulon and went to to the habour. There were a lot of little boats and yachts, but also Ferry ships, Cruise ships and a big part of a military habour with war ships.



We took a sightseeing tour on a ship around the habour.



The first part of the trip was the military area where you could see all these war ships, which to my taste where too many and not necessary at all. The value of all these ships could save a whole country from the economic crisis !



Fortunately we also saw other big ships and the one below had been completely burnt down by the owners as they transported tons of drugs.



The other side of the habour looked beautiful and peaceful too, there were no warships at all.

Quiet tired from all this fresh air we returned home where we found Claudie's daughter and her boyfriend and we had a nice supper together, lots of laughter and then they wanted me to take me out to a Karaoke evening. I found this very flattering but told them that for that I really feel a little too vintage !
Claudie and I ended the evening with chatting and I wrote this post.

You do look very relaxed. How pleasant to be walking around in tee shirts. I love walking by the sea and am feeling the need to visit the coast.

Picture perfect scenery except I think the sand on my beach is a lot better.

No karaoke? And here I was picturing you singing 'Oops I did it again' by Britney Spears!
