On a cloudy day in Provence – what to do?

It was Monday, October 4, 2010. Claudie and Pierre had left the House and gone to work.
We wake up late and had some breakfast, prepared by Pierre before he left.
As allways very good.
What to do after Morning Coffee 
We could not sit just here all day. Besides, heavy clouds were on it’s way.
And it was blowing. Click on the Photo and watch the Trees.
La Tour Fondue - France  5 
So what to do? We went South.
To the peninsula of Giens.

The southern part of Hyères, which I did visit first time in 1967.
As a student. We slept on the Beach at that time;).
Time changes.
Here is from the south west side of the peninsula, at the marina. La Tour Fondue - La Bouillabaisse
I f you love the famouse french fish pot, you can have it here. But keep in mind the serving hours. We arrived 5 minutes too late for Lunch and the Bouillabaisse
La Tour Fondue - France 4
So we went to the other side of this tiny, charming peninsula, to La Tour Fondue.
La Tour Fondue - Moules Frites 1
And had a local tradtion for Lunch: Moules aux Frites.La Tour Fondue - France  3 
Here you see the fortresse – settled on a very tiny Island.
La Tour Fondue - France  6 
La Tour de Fondue is the main port to visit L’îles d’Or – the Golden Islands of  The  3 Hyères Islands. Recommended when you are in the Area.
Cake 1 Cake 2
Cake 3 Cake 4
On our way back to Claudie and Pierre we thought about to give them a surprise during their working week days – some delicious cakes for dessert.
At the Computer 
After the cakes, we had fun watching photos of ourselfs and even manipulated the Photos.

Afterwards we was introduced to some extrodinary video-clips with famous french singer Serge Gainsbourg.
He is without no doubt one of a kind.

Take a minute and watch when he met Whitney Houston on Direct TV.
You must watch the Clip to believe it. What he said to her is not suitable on this blog.

He is most known for: Je t’aime  moi non plus, with Jane Birkin

Oh how fun and the lunch look divine. I'm hungry now.

I didn't care for the clod on the video. What a nasty, no class guy. As for Whitney? She's a drugged out has-been. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you both. :)
