As the terrace is not yet built, I put a chair in the window and could take the first sunbath this year ! I even needed suncream. I was dressed in layers like an onion and from a thick cardigan over a sweater and a T-shirt I finally sat there wearing only a little sun bath top.
while Melissa Claudie's daughter had still her winter clothes on, she had to change later.
After lunch we went to Bandol a little town at the sea very much appreciated by tourists in summer.
But at this time of the year there weren't many. People played boccia, or cleaned their yachts and boats. Unfortunately at the seafront many old mansions had been destroyed and replaced by buildings with lot of flats for tourists. We made a long walk and then sat at the seafront and watched the people walking by.
Claudie's husband Pierre was busy with digging a trench to place a gate. Very hard work with this clay soil.
We had a wonderful supper with stuffed zucchinis, red and green pepper and tomatoes, grilled with olive oil and provincial herbs.
