Arrived in France this morning and it was already 8O degrees! We were pretty tired since we had to get up at 4am, so just about everyone is taking a nap. Only took 1 hour 40 minutes to get here by plane. The scenery is gorgeous -- very mountainous with the crystal blue mediterranean lapping onto beaches and rocky coves. The hotel is very nice too. We each have four poster beds and a large sunny veranda with a view over the pool, and Port Grimaud below. While Jenny and I try to speak French, Mom and Dad of course don't have a clue and start in english. But so far they're enjoying themselves and we're proud of them for their courage in even coming to France -- it was afterall Jenny and I who coerced them into coming! After nap time and numerous pool trips we went into Port Grimaud for dinner. Lovely marina town with many venetian-style canals and restaurants. Parents experienced couscous restaurant for first time -- really nice food. Only minutes away and across bay from St. Tropez. Had to of course walk amongst the yachts and drool a bit. Dad picked up information on renting a small 20' boat, which we may do this week for half day.
