After a good night sleep in a big bed and a good breakfast we went for a walk through La Grande Motte for a couple of hours, the weather is reasonable but still not as it is supposed to be
When we came back we prepared for lunch which we had next to the pool. It was prepared on a hot stone and it was really nice. After having relaxed for an hour afterwards we left for Montpellier where we enjoyed the town first by walking around the beautiful little streets and squares and than some shops and boutiques. As the time of discounts has arrived of course the 2 women want to check this out. In the evening we went to the Friday evening party with wine "degustation" after we had a Turkish kebab. There were lots of stands with bice things to buy and free groups playing on a big square near the opera house, great to have this every Friday. We had a real good time, this is a fun town to party that's for sure.
After a good sleep and breakfast we went to the beach with a full pick nick basket. The sun was ok but after an hour the wind came up again and it was impossible to stay, we stayed another hour but than decided to go back and have our pick nick next to the pool where it was great ! In the afternoon we went to Grau-du-Roi a small originally fisher town which was still real cute and Aigues-Mortes, the medieval town which we tried to visit last time but we had to abandon because of the rain. It has a real nice atmosphere with lots of ateliers where artists sell their original work, we had a great afternoon and in the evening again Brigitte prepared us a lovely meal, it starts to feel like a gastronomic holiday, she is just a much to good cook and they're sooo good to us
We wanted to go to the beach but the wind was still quit strong so we waited till after lunch. Brigitte's father brought the oysters which look really good and the price here is incredible, 4,5€ for 12. He has 12 every Friday, he says that's why he still in such a good shape, it's true he's great and really funny for his age (80)
After lunch the wind calmed down and we went to the beach where today it was really nice. After a while we went for a long 2 hour walk while Brigitte preferred to read her book. We stayed until 6:30 and went back, showered and started to prepare the oysters, mmmm
The oysters were delicious and the rest of the dinner too. We will really have to diet from Monday on !!!
We spent a great last evening together.
1st of July
After breakfast and saying goodbye to this wonderful couple we left around 10.
