The water at Marseillan-plage was the nicest it’s been all summer – perfect temperature for swimming (I like it Mediterranean-warm), a few small waves and not many other bathers. Soon the beaches will be even less crowded. September is our favourite time of year for swimming in the sea as the tourists have all gone but the water is still warm.
Then a coffee at one of the enjoyably tacky cafés near the beach – I thought this one had nice cups.
Back at home, Lo Jardinièr made chicken in white wine and cream sauce with red peppers and sautéed potatoes. He said it was very simple to make although he spent more time standing over a hot griddle than I would have wanted.
