****Today I had to get up at 4 am ! My plane to Marseille was at 7.30 am. I was limited with my luggage weight to 10 kgs otherwise I would have to pay more then my flight ticket ! Therefore I put on 4 trousers and 4 T-shirts plus a fleece jacket and my coat. The trousers where for my friend, mine were in my suitcase ! And only one was allowed. When I went through the scan, it rang. Without a handbag I had put all my things in the pockets of the 4 trousers. The lady who checked me got crazy when I emptied the 8 pockets of my 4 trousers. As she didn't find neither knife nor pistol or other weapons on me she let me go near a nervous breakdown.
When I arrived in Marseille it was very warm. I immediately went to the toilet and got rid of 3 pairs of trousers, I kept one and 3 T-shirts. I put everything in my suitcase and took my handbag out in which I put the things I had carried in the pockets.
When I had finished, Claudie just arrived at the airport to pick me up.
On the way to Ollioules where she lives we picked up her eldest daughter who lives in this charming place in the middle of fields with her boyfriend.
We had a nice lunch and sat on the terrace together with her two daughters. The crickets chirped, the flowers and plants around smelled so good ... I was in the South at the French Riviera.
Late afternoon we went to the beach and had an aperitif on the terrace of a little bar. There were so many tourist ! and the beach was packed ! Too many for our taste. We left after an hour and drove home, had a wonderful supper with grilled fish, Salad and roasted potatoes, cheese and a desert.
I went early to bed, after such a long day I was tired.
