It was only fitting that my last day out in France was spent at Collioure. The weather was beautiful, so Susanna and I went to have a nice lunch, shop a bit, sit on the beach, and then we did the glass-bottom boat that cruises around Collioure, Argeles, Port Vendres, and some caves in between. We ate at Chez Simone, which we’ve been to a couple times and is a great little cafe right on the beach!
I went to say goodbye to friends we made the first weekend there – Jean Louis wished me ‘bon retour’ (good return) to the United States, and hoped I had spent a good time in France.
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it a million times – Collioure is a magical place. Here’s some pictures from the day
The boat cruise advertised a “glass-bottom” boat, which turned out to only be a couple little foggy windows in the bottom. And you don’t actually go into the caves because the boat is too big. So that part was a little misleading… but as far as a beautiful cruise around the coastal areas, it was great!
It was a really nice day with Susanna! 🙂 After the boat ride, we had about 2 hours to wait for the train home. So we sat at the water’s edge and threw rocks into the water like children for about an hour. Then had a cafe and ice cream and then headed home!
