... It was St. Tropez. We had done a lot of things in France except swam in the sea, today it had to be done. Clear blue but freezing, I kept telling myself it would get warmer, however it didn't. It was so refreshing when submerging myself, Ben wouldn't go under and with a little help from a French lady we started laughing at him. "Regardez moi" she excitedly said (watch me).

... was excellent. Pizza for Kit, carbonara for the girls and foie gras for Anne and me. A bottle of wine and a bill of €120. To the Havana Bar for pudding of ice cream, a live steel drum band and convivial waiters and then home. The sea was rough tonight and the kids ran through the waves as they crashed up the beach.
