We were upgraded to a suite, private terrace, in Hotel de la Cite. with Covid did not expect a buffet breakfast, though 'twas good! Michelin starred lunch even better

Need these meals to get our full quota of photos taken! But we were subjected to a long traipse down to the Canal du Midi before it

Hotel can be seen lower right. Also had to do some rope climbing during the long trek: we were remarkably good at it! Sitting on walls also one of our fortes!

Stayed again in Brinas on the way home. Good view, good dinner & a sumptious breakfast- safely served at table

 

Then back in Moraira to hole up for the rest of August- the mater decrees it is too hot to venture forth in August! . .
