France 2008

We drove to Collioure. It is about 50 miles south of our apartment in Gruissan. It is also about 20 miles from the Spanish boarder.

The town was originally famous because artists (Matisse and others) gathered here to paint. They considered the sky to be crystal clear and very blue. It presented unique lighting. Look over the apartments as to the dark blue color of the sky.

Most of the streets are walking streets.

Restaurants along the beach

Cynthia shopping

It's lunch time. Cynthia has smoked salmon (see the slices under the toast) with little pieces of ground up shrimp.

In order to keep his body as good looking and slim as ever, Walter had the chicken salad - NO wine, just bottled water
