Caroline and I visited Grasse ~15 years ago and remembered the Fragonard perfumery, in pride of place at the head of the old town. [more words to follow] After a rainy and chilled out morning (including 'church at home' - recommend the Bill Hybels baptism talk from 22/6/14 at www.media.willow creek.org) we headed into Grasse and the International Perfume Museum. Really impressive with lots of interaction (inc smells of course) and quirky exhibits to keep us ...
... pebbles instead of a sandy beach as we had imagined - oh well!
We had an interesting dinner tonight, where most of the menu was lost in translation (at least we hope so!) The menu offered us a "pavement of salmon in vanilla sauce" and a "plate of pasta with the sound of crumbling ham"! We ordered the spaghetti.
... look around the city ourselves, but realised that we would have to ask the tourist office where the new departure point was situated The matter was soon cleared up for us , so off we went again to give it another try. Better luck this time, it was a 45 minute ride through the city and gave us a good idea where everything was and gives you your bearings as well. The ride itself was fantastic and very informative and of course ...
... liked to have stayed longer but we wanted to go back to Mougins for lunch and we wandered back to the car by another route through another busy square full of restaurants but unfortunately not tempting enough to make us stay.
It was very hot in Mougins when we arrived and we strolled up into the village eventually deciding on Le Rendevous de Mougins in the square. It had a nicely shaded terrace whereas the others were a little more in the direct heat. The menu looked good ...
... back to jordie by Florence. We had a third stop before we
got to our camp site, I just wandered around, stretching my legs, I
was hoping to find an ATM, but couldn't find one.
Back on the bus and it was a short drive to the
camp site, this was in Antibes, close to a fairground and a beach.
We arrived at 6.30pm, found our cabins,
unpacked and went to the food tent where we had welcome drinks ...
