On a cloudy day in Provence – what to do?
We wake up late and had some breakfast, prepared by Pierre before he left.
As allways very good.
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.
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;).
Here is from the south west side of the peninsula, at the marina.
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.
So we went to the other side of this tiny, charming peninsula, to La Tour Fondue.
And had a local tradtion for Lunch: Moules aux Frites.
Here you see the fortresse – settled on a very tiny Island.
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.
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
