Quite a change – we have moved from the countryside to the town and from a big open-plan barn conversion to a compact town house. It seems quiet and peaceful here though and we wake up to a lovely view over the rooftops from the bedroom window. We unpack, meet a few neighbours and stroll down to the town to buy bread and cakes. It’s quite chilly but sunny and bright with a lovely blue sky so we eat lunch on the patio. Off for a drive to get our bearings and pick up a few groceries at the supermarket.
Tuesday also seems to be lovely weather so we head for the coast – just a 20 minute drive to Meze. Pick up a map from Tourist Info and head for the beach – it is a real wow! Strolling around in the sunshine in December was lovely – blue sea, blue sky and lots of seafood restaurants. Had lunch at Cafe du Port – shrimp salads, moules for Derek and tuna for me – sitting outside gazing at all the expensive yachts in the basin.
The header picture for the blog is a panorama of Meze – we’ve been trying to get a photo with us both in but it’s not easy!
