October 15 Marseilles France

Today I did not have much planned so we headed to dining room for breakfast. I had the feta Greek omelet with grilled onions that would end up being one of our favorite breakfast.We sat next to Carlos and Lois from Canada.

Marseilles is located on the Gulf of Lions on the southeastern coast of France.We wanted to head to Notre Dame dela Garde that dominates the city from its position.

We chose the free port bus that was available outside the main gate. The cruise wanted to charge 25 a person for scenic boat transfer,Of course I was too tight to pay that, In no time we were on our way. When we got off we needed to find the bus stop to get to the old port. Carlos and Lois the retired teachers teamed up with us. I like to explore places on our own but sometimes things can go wrong. Most of the time everything went smoothly but today was the first glitch in plans. Our lack of language barrier was a problem, we would be lost for about one hour before we found the bus stop and correct way to Marseilles. We had many laughs with our miscues along the way. We walked miles but the view was worth the effort.We hiked up to Notre Dame and had a lovely day,

Getting back to the ship was much easier.We went up on solstice deck and rested on big orange beds. Ate lamb chop, Jim had salmon on smoked wood and apple crunch pie. We danced til 1130, met Gordon and Mona from Canada and would end up dancing with them several nights.
