Sunday morning the 9th, we docked in Toulon, France. Our excursion for today will be to see Bandol and the Beach!
Bandol is a small town with a peaceful little port, packed full of quaint shops and cafes.
We hop on the tour bus and enjoy the drive to the beach, I believe the bus rides were one of my favorite things on the trip, I love going for drives, just ask my hubby, if he mentions a car ride I am in the front seat like a puppy dog, head out the window! Plus, the rides were a great way to actually see the towns away from the touristy spots.
We arrive in Bandol and start the walk along the shops and cafes, just us girls, Jeff decided to go sit in the sand and put his toes in the water, plenty of time for that later, girls gotta shop!
We got a little hungry so we stop in a cafe and had salad and wine. Perfect!
Off to see the beach where I put my toes in the water of the Mediterranean Sea!
Back on the bus for the ride to the ship, we will be dining with the Captain tonight! Courtesy of one of Jeff's friends who works for Royal Caribbean. Nice!
It was a lovely dinner, I sat between the Chief Engineer and the Ships Doctor!
After dinner we went to the schooner bar and played music trivia, one of our favorite pastimes on the cruise ships.
