FIRST LITTLE SIGHTSEEING AT THE FRENCH RIVIERA

The first day of my holidays started with a nice cup of coffee on the balcony with a blue sky and a lot of sunshine. I only have coffee in the morning because I am never hungry and they never took breakfast either, so that was another use we shared together.

I did my little blogging and we chatted a lot of course and than had a nice lunch with the left overs from the evening, before we went to the sea.



Our lunch table, my "office" and a picture I took in a bakery



We walked along the sea front in Sanary, a nice little town. The whole landscape reminded me so much of Italy. We sat in the sun in a little café and had a coffee. The weather is warm but not enough to walk around in a T-shirt we needed a cardigan because there was a little wind.



Then we went to the next little town Bandol. I don't remember having seen any leisure ports with so many luxury yachts in both cities !

We went to a beach bar and had another drink before shopping at "Lidl". The Europeans will all know that Lidl is a supermarket and so far I have been in it in Italy, England, Germany and now in France. The funniest thing is that the shops in all countries have exactly the same display as my Lidl in Waterloo, so besides the language and some local products it's everywhere exactly the same and I wasn't lost at all.

After supper on the balcony we chatted and laughed a lot before we all went to bed rather tired !

Now I'm really there, because we remember exactly how it was there. Lovely place to take a stroll and especially with Claudie et Pierre!
