A promising day so we head off for Lac du Monteynard; a lake formed from damming the River Drac ; to pick up the Bateau La Mira for a lunchtime cruise up to the dam and back.

It was a very pleasant two and a half hour trip with good wine and food, beautiful scenery; all around the mountains, seen from a different perspective and mirrored again in the azure waters.

We were entertained by an aerobatic display from the para –surfers and the wind surfers were out in force too, providing lots of activities to watch and keep us amused as I am sure they were playing to us as their audience.

We enjoyed a glass of Chartreuse on the boat which is a local liqueur and very pleasant; I must buy some to take back; the commentary was in French of course and I'm convinced we have absorbed a greater knowledge of the language since we have been here. It would be wonderful to be fluent in French, although we always seem to get by with our schooldays French.

A quick trip to the market to get some fresh fish; Dorada and Salmon for dinner and we arrive back to catch the late afternoon sun.

A bit of apple catching…………….no …….not scrumping! And dessert is a gift!

Another lovely day in Paradise!
