Another great day in Southern France! We started the morning off with another wine tasting at Chateau Henri Bonnaud Winery . . . the best tasting yet! All three wines were excellent! We purchased a red, that we will keep for a year or two. Got a business card and I will write to the LCBO and recommend they import from this winery.
We then returned to the hotel and relaxed at the pool for a couple of hours, having a very expensive lunch (in error) 70 Euros for essentially a cold buffet . . . that is over $100, yikes for lunch. Feeling kinda ripped off for that one.
We went on an interesting walking tour with Joe and most of the group. We saw numerous historical sites throughout what is called “New Town”. Many of the buildings were built in the 1800s. We did see a magnificent cathedral and listened to the organ player and flutist. The sounds in this church were really great. Had a beer with the group in More Aix Pics
an Irish Pub??? Jill & I then walked the Promenade arriving back at the hotel around 6:45 to unload a 2 litre bottle of water (Free??? Hooray) and the headed out to supper.
We had a really good Pizza on the Promenade, an excellent bottle of wine and simply people watched for a couple of hours. The service was great with the waiter being very friendly.
Off to Cassis tomorrow early . . . our second last day . . . darn!!!
