Bord de Mer

Jacques and Michelle Kimmel

Continuing with our lovely day ...

After leaving the Chateau de Saint Martin, Jacques and Michelle treated Patricia and me to a ride along the sea coast ... from St. Raphael to Antibes. The weather was beautiful and we drove in the open air convertible.

Passing by the magnificent l'Esterel Mountains

... and the beautiful Mediterranean

We passed by the incredible Chateau de la Napoule ...

... and the 'French Kiss' café

... and the legendary 'Hotel Carlton' ... you might remember the 'French Kiss' scene filmed there

After our tour of the 'Bord de Mer' ... Jacques and Michelle treated us to a lovely dinner in their home ... and also treated us to this lovely bottle of Champagne ! They had saved it for six years and wanted to wait for the right occasion to 'pop the cork' .. how very nice of them !

... and they enlightened us with the 'Recipe of a Happy Union' ... dust off your French dictionaries !

It was a fantastic day !! One of the nicest I ever had in France ... and there were a lot of very nice days !!
