Sunday 17. 07. 11 Went with George and Laurene down to Montagnac this afternoon to watch le Tour. As always a very festive atmosphere with the caravan coming by throwing hats, scarves and sweets at the crowd. This all happens about an hour before the riders who all pass by in about 10 seconds!
Tuesday 12. 07. 11 Just back from a visit to Marie-Pierre and Olivier. We had a wonderful time, fishing in the Bassin d’Arcachon, picking green beans from an allotment, visiting Bordeaux and seeing an expo at CACP. En route back we stopped for lunch with Michele in Bayonne. A very convivial and animated weekend.
Sunday 03. 07. 11 Yesterday we took a boat tour in the afternoon from the Grau d’Agde. Starting on the Herault up to Agde, the écluse ronde to the Canal du Midi, across the wildlife sanctuary at Bagnas and out into the Etang de Thau and back again. En route a plate of oysters with white wine. Four and a half hours en bateau for 13 euros – a bargain.
