Day in Collioure

I cannot argue with WordPress for iPad anymore at this time. If the geniuses at Apple in Barcelona were befuddled, this genius, now in Le Boulou, France can’t do any better.
SO,
It is text first, pics to follow.
Staying at Le Relais Des Chartreuses outside of Le Boulou, France, just over the Spain/France border. Don’t bother getting out a map…it’s probably not on there. Even the GPS asked ‘are you sure?’. Wonderful B&B owned by a charming couple, and he is a gourmet chef. We sit on the patio for dinner every night…food is outstanding and it sounds so wonderful in French!
Language comprehension has gone way up since crossing the border!
Yesterday visited many of the little coastal towns that figured greatly in the lives of great artists like Picasso, Matisse and Dali…towns like Collioure, Port Vendres, Banyuls sur Mer and Cerberes…charming coastal towns we visited with
EVERY Frenchman in the country (it is August in France!)
So we come back to our refuge here in the mountains for the pool and wine service before dinner.
Very civilized…j’aime La France.
