There's really not much to say about our little trip to Sète, and I'm feeling too lazy to go into details about stuff that y'all will probably find boring. Basically, Margaret, Vlasis, and I took a day trip to Sète (15 minute train ride), a peninsula neighboring Montpellier, the number one fishing port in the Mediterranean Sea, and the birthplace of Paul Valéry (after whom the university is named). We wandered around the port and had a nice seafood lunch. I even had sea snails as my entrée (which is the appetizer, not the main plate as American English has mistakenly assigned the term). They were very...oceany: a little fishy and a little sandy. But, hey, it was an experience and local flavor (wink, wink, Daddy!). After a nice leisurely lunch we walked down to a little beach cove and just sat in the sand talking for a couple of hours. Then we headed back to the train station. Like I said: not much to report. It was an enjoyable, relaxing little trip to a beautiful Mediterranean port town. (Margaret is pushing hard to move there even though they just moved to Montpellier!). Enjoy the pictures!

Easy to see why Margaret wants to live there. Lots of love, Aunt Sue
