My holidays continue in wonderful weather, it is warm and my "office" is outside

I am spoiled with the delicious food Claudie's husband prepares. He loves cooking.

 Here he is preparing chicken  brochettes

Each day I have an ice cream and the vegetables we eat come from the garden and sometimes they have real funny shapes ! The eggplant looks like a man's head with a huge nose. The figs are growing in abundance you just have to pick them up from the trees.

We went along the beach in Toulon and Claudie checked  the water, but it was a little too chilly for our taste ! But at least we could take a nice sunbath and then sit on the terrace of a cafĂ© to have a drink.

We also went up into the mountains to a charming little village (Castelet) from where we had a beautiful view over the whole landscape.

You may thing the eggplant looks like a man's head with a large nose. I think it looks like something else.

Hi Gattina .. someone's got a sense of humour! Love fresh veggies - regardless of the shape .. while the village of Castelet - looks just wonderful ...

Sounds like you're enjoying yourself loads ... cheers Hilary

I think I want to move to the South of France and eat Chicken Brochetts with funny shaped eggplants. You make it all sound so wonderful.
But why are the people lying on the beach in such neat rows?

Only Andrew could make a comment like that! It is so cold here I am having a hot drink with a blanket over my lap!!!

We had really great time at Le Castellet! And tomorrow will be the next day before your departure! But no worry we will enjoy again the beach tomorrow!
