Oceans and Cathedrals : and Perfection
With eager thoughts of finally arriving on the Mediterranean shores of our beloved France, we were thrilled to see Marie arrive at the Kyriad Hotel early next morning.
So much planning had preceded our meeting and I had been worried that she may not have returned from the USA in time for our visit.
Marie had a twinkle in her eye which could only mean mischief.
We set out for the coast and the wonderful Monument historique, la Cathédrale Saint-Pierre at Maguelone.
I had been looking forward to this day for months after Marie's wonderful photos from its roof, on Montpellier Daily Photo.
Approaching our destination and winding through the coastal lakes beside the shoreline we came to the long and sunny beach at Palavas-les-Flots.
It was here that I first understood the twinkle in the eyes of a French girl !
