Summer Trip - Day 33: Bormes-les-Mimosas, France

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

We had a relaxing morning for breakfast… watched an episode or two of CSI (which was the TV show of the week) and then took the boats out for a bit.  The Mcganty’s have two boats: a small speedboat and then a larger sailboat.  We took both of them out in the afternoon on our way to lunch down the coast.  We went wakeboarding in the speedboat on the way there.  This was my first time ever wakeboarding (I’ve skied before, but never tried wakeboarding) so I had a bit of trouble getting up at first but eventually got it.

The lunch was really cool (before I continue, let me say that ALL of the food during our stay here was absolutely amazing.  From home-cooked meals to any time we went out it was such good food and a really great thing for the Mcganty’s to treat us to) because we had to anchor the boats in the bay near the restaurant and then swim to shore.  After lunch we hung out on the beach playing sports and messing around.  The Britts made us play rugby so we taught them a bit of American football.  We then busted out the Tarazan-swing off of their boat and messed around for a bit before sailing back home.



That night we played minigolf, which was fun.  Afterward we didn’t do all that much but it was definitely a welcomed change-of-pace to just relax and watch tv.  Between warm weather, good food, playing cards, wakeboarding… what else is summer supposed to be about? J
