We arrived around 12 at Michel and Brigitte's who's back, great to be here again and to see them both this time. After a drink Brigitte made us lunch, a nice quiche with salad. After lunch Michelle had to go to Montpellier to do some work on their apartments. We went for a bicycle ride with Brigitte who showed us La Grande Motte a bit better, nice riding along the golf courts and the port with all it's boats. We had a drink on a terras and came back around 7. M & B had to go to a dinner that had been organized before. Brigitte was so sweet to leave us dinner ready before they left. We are really spoiled. We had dinner outside next to the pool and afterwards we connected our hard disk on their tv and watched Homeland.

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. Tomorrow we're going to have oysters as dinner, her father will buy them on the market. We had a great dinner and we had fun, Michel and I stayed up a little longer and had a few drinks of good rum.

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.

Aan de foto's te zien, zien we jullie nog niet direct terug hé?
Gelijk hebben jullie: overwegend lekker weertje daar, gezellige terrasjes (hebben we hier natuurlijk ook maar meestal moet je in fleecedekentje ingeduffeld zijn :-)),...Nu zijn jullie vermoedelijk aan het genieten van het huwelijksfeest in Italië? Wens ze alleszins heel veel geluk ook van ons!

Veronique, Didier en kids xxx
