At Liliane's

July 28th
Arthur, Liliane, and Francois (31/2 year old grandson) met me at the airport.  It was wonderful to see them.  We drove the scenic route back to La Ciotat, stopping to purchase fruit at a beautiful little farmer's market.  Liliane said we could taste anything, so I did!  Delicious cherries, apricots, peaches.........
Their house was a true picture of a French farm house.  It was built approximately 100 years ago, three stories, with my charming room at the very top.  We ate supper outside at 8:30 in the evening............first course---shrimp dipped in mayonnaise, then salad and a potato/cod pancake, with cheese and fruit as dessert.  Arthur was very determined that Francoise eat his meal.  They teach French children that it is very rude to leave food on your plate.  Francoise wasn’t very interested.

It was wonderful to go to bed and wake up refreshed and ready for coffee!

I woke up this morning dreaming of coffee.  We are going to the beach!
The French people love the beach as you can see from this picture.  

Francoise, Arthur, and Liliane

This afternoon we went to visit Liliane's sweet parents.  I remember going to visit them when they were first building their country house.  

Francoise did not want his picture taken.
