Bonjour!  Max’s bag arrived!!  Only after we spent a few hours shopping at Centre D’Bouse (Shopping Mall).  Although we did return most of the clothing purchased, Max did keep a few of Euro style boxers!  (no worries… no photos were taken showing his new attire!)   But such a relief for Max (and Molly) to have the bag in hand.  After a good shower and shave with all of his own toiletries Max was in a good mood and ready to enjoy the day!

After the shopping spree (then return) we spent the rest of the afternoon walking the streets of Marseille.  We had already made it up and down the port several times so we ventured off the main roads and found some quaint streets.  With more shopping!  We picked up a baguette, some brie fromage, and vin!!  We enjoyed most of our treat while sitting under a tree… but took the rest home to enjoy on our balcony with the splendid view of the port!

Lastly, we rested up so that we would have dinner and the proper “French” time… we arrived at La Galiota around 7:30pm and enjoyed pizza and more vin!  Our dinner wrapped up around 9:30pm which was just about the time the restaurant started hopping… I guess tonight we rest longer!  The sun doesn’t go down until 9:30-10pm!!

Today we are off to see la Gorges du Verdon and hopefully the beaches of St. Tropez!!  Wish us luck on the drive!
