Marseille (May2017) - Day 5 & 6: Beach, Desserts and Raclette

Day 5 - Wednesday 17th May

Day 5 consisted of eating breakfast at Mrs Travels friend's place where we had homemade breakfast of pancakes and muffins... Felt so privileged to go and eat in someone's home for homemade food!! So happpppy!! 
Mrs Travels chatted about in French to her friend, so I sat eating and watching Missy A draw... It's a half day in school for most French kids. (Their homework is more complicated than the British!).

Mini chocolate muffin was amazing! Tasted like it was from a shop, but no not at all!! ^_^

We headed to the local beach for a few minutes, and Mrs Travels said I should write this... Defo for the folks at work and home to see... I'm not always in the office!!! :p



These sandals made it to the bin on my last day... Heheheh, I bought new ones when I got back to the UK.

This is the view from Mrs Travels' friend's home. Amazing! Top floor too!!

We had spaghetti bolognaise that afternoon. ^_^

That evening we took Missy I to one of her gym/dance classes. Missy S had an hour to spare before her gym class, so we headed to the beach... it was hot! And I've realised I don't like stony beaches that much... They huuuurt your feet!! But I did have a great massage from them I guess.

Day 6 - Thursday 18th May

What the beach again? We headed out to this one which is by the market near the girl's school... We went looking for seashells which follow a legend... they are the shiva eye seashells which "symbolizes the creation, preservation and destruction of all from the flow of life".


It was a nice cool day, and we were at the bakery quite early... got to glimpse at all these pretty cakes!! Awwwwww, I love French cakes!!




The girls and I got to try these out. Yuuuuuumy!!

Well, well, well, what was for dinner? Raclette time! I think I had loads of potatoes and cheese... At one point I had thought we ran out of cheese. What no more cheese? Of course not, Mr and Mrs Travels really think ahead. ^_^



Mr Travels coaxed Mrs Travels and I to watch a scary movie, so we ended up watching Wolf Creek, which wasn't entirely scary, just gross. Am I getting immune to very mild scary movies, maybe! Mr Travels also made me some sweet version of cous cous... hmmm, how comes he served me a lot? I don't eat THAT much. :p Think I prefer savoury cous cous. 

Our evening almost ended up being a good one but Missy I was apparently awake listening in on us, and got into trouble because of that.... Oh dear. 

End of Day 5 and 6.
