We are loving the easy life here....I get up around 7:30, meditate on the beach, go for a short run before it gets too hot, have coffee and some kind of sweet from the bakery, swim, shower, eat breakfast...and then all that's left is reading and stroling.

We've taken some long walks up to the channel that separates this part of the penninsula from the rest and makes it an island. The last buildings on the beach are only a mile or so from our hotel. We may rent bikes today and explore more.

Hard to believe it may snow back home today....

Many French and Italians here..not as many Americans...Lots of choices for good food, ranging from Italian pizza (owned by an Italian) to sushi (haven't been there), and plenty of fresh fish.

While there are high end hotels, most of the island is low got overbuilt in the past few years, so there are many hotels empty and for sale....Life is split between the former fishing village and a resort....Bill asked to use the bathroom at a small seafront diner, and was shown a screened off patch of sand!

But there are also yoga classes offered, and expensive shops....
