We do not tend to lie in at Cap dAgde as there is too much to do and see, so we are up at 8.30 or 9.00am. We often breakfast at L’Horizon where it is just so nice to sit in their birthday suits on the terrace. We take a leisurely breakfast of bread, croissants, coffee or sometimes bacon and eggs and enjoys the views. The Mediterranean shimmers and slowly people start to fill the beach, bathing as nature intended, under the warm sun. Enjoying time away from the daily toil back home, afterwards perhaps a little shopping, checking out the fashions and a purchase for Mrs P to wear in the evening.
This year in our second week however, we stayed at Babylone, so the routine varied a little. A brief stroll through the village to the bakery and supermarket. The proprietor of the bakery is so jolly, a bonjour, bon vacance for each customer. This week, back to the apartment and breakfast on the terrace. Then a spell by the pool and then we often go to the beach around lunchtime and may park ourselves on the sun beds at Les Galions or this year we enjoyed the beds below the Beach restaurant just before the couples beach. The service here was great and the wines and food enjoyable. Then a read of the newspaper or a book and time for a walk along the beach to cool off in the breeze and to enjoy the views.
In the late afternoon or early evening, we return to the apartment and dress for the night ahead. We like to dine at Jardin 16; always reliable and the chance to chat over dinner and perhaps make conversation with the neighbouring table. This year we met a lovely couple from London who were both 84 and had been going to Cap D’Agde for many years! Afterwards a promenade, perhaps a drink at Waikiki beach to take in the sights. Melrose is a favourite of ours and on a good night the atmosphere rocks and the sexual tension is so acute.
We always try and take in a mousse party and this year were lucky enough to be at Babylone when they had a pool party for the SDC crowd. And what a party it was!
We remember all these lovely experiences and especially as the winter draws close, they keep us going until summer next year when we can do it all again!
