MONDAY-4th… We waited to 10:50 to take the bus to Rochebonne for our return walk on the digue. We waited that long so there would be more sunshine on the digue. The temperature at 11 this morning was only 17°C.

The 4th of July is not a holiday here, so it was pretty much business as usual on the digue.

Our afternoon walk took us past the boules players where we said hello and then we walked on the mole. Beautiful day all around.

Walk to the harbor – sea gull paddling along in the harbor

TUESDAY-5th had our normal shopping trip to the Intermarché Super.

We watched the first parade of the Folklore-du-Monde in the late afternoon. It started at the Esplanade Saint-Vincent right by the castle.

From the parade, which only lasted 10 minutes, we walked to the digue. We were meeting friends for dinner and we were early, so we stopped at a hotel resto-bistro which was right on the digue. We had a nice white wine with peach liqueur, a Kir.

We had dinner at the restaurant L’Olivier on the Sillon. Pizza with our friends Jean-Louis and Claudine who brought their 8 year old grand-daughter Thea. It was very good as usual.

WEDNESDAY-6th walk on the digue to find the resto-bistrot Sandy had noticed last week. We had a drink, an Orangina, at the resto-bistrot called Les-Charmettes. We sat on the terrace, sipped our Oranginas and enjoyed a terrific view of the sea. Our server was a young lady who explained their food menu and spent some time talking with us.

In the late afternoon we went to the see the start of the Folklore-du-Monde parade at the Esplanade Saint-Vincent.

THURSDAY-7th we had a nice visit to the Rocabey marché. The butcher was in a good mood, and Phil asked him if the meat was “free” today. He replied “No, that was yesterday.” This was the second week in a row that he used the same punchline, so we teased him about it.

FRIDAY-8th and lunch at Les-Charmettes on the digue. We arrived at 12:15 and while we did not have a reservation, we did get a table toward the back of the terrace. We had a glass of rosé wine and a very good lunch. We shared a tiramisu for dessert. The view of the sea was wonderful.

Watched the start of the Folklore-du-Monde parade at the Esplanade Saint-Vincent. There was a group from Brittany and a group from the Czech Republic. Both stopped to perform their traditional dances before walking through the stone gates to enter the Intra-Muros.

SATURDAY-9th and we planned to take a walk. Big surprise. The walk today was through Saint-Servan, a stop at the Rosarie-Saint-Anne, then to the Solidor tower. We stopped by the Solidor tower and had a couple of drinks, grenadine and water, at the Le Cancalaise bistro-resto.

We had the usual great view, plus we got to watch an artist working on a painting.

Our walk through Saint-Servan, Roserie-Sainte-Anne, Tour Solidor and Bas Sablons.

SUNDAY-10th marked the end of Folklore-du-Monde festival. We took a bus at 10:15 to the Rochebonne area near Paramé. The parade started in Rochebonne and ended in Paramé. We got a good spot in the shade to watch the parade. The shade was more important to us than having a close view of the parade. As usual there was a big crowd. The crowd was constantly nudging forward to get a closer look at the parade. We did not play that game and just stayed in the shade. It was a nice parade which lasted about 35 minutes.
