... the Bishop’s Palace has been converted into the Musee des Beaux Arts, a very nice Art Gallery in rooms which still had some of the original furnishings.

Our apartment is on the other side of town, so we decided to walk back to that area for a quieter scene. Our route back was on the boardwalk bordering the cove. On the way we noticed the beach was packed with people. They were mostly on chairs and seemed to be waiting for a specific event. We ...
