Only four weeks to run now as from today! I hear they have been having rain in Paris, but it has been blazing hot here the whole time, equal to the hottest we get at home. Took boat out yesterday on very light breeze, dropped sail & bathed off her, water has been getting noticeably warmer all the week & will probably be quite warm after I’ve left! Leaving here Tuesday a.m., to my regret! Have managed to collect a few more photos which I’ll send on when I get back to Paris. Just going out on, and in, sea again. This place next along coast.
Love,
Hubby
