Paul enjoyed a swim in the Mediterranean Sea

Visit to the old town centre of Montpellier, walked through their 'Arc De Triumphe' over to the 'Aqueduc Saint-Clement', very impressive built in 1754 to supply town with drinking water. We then walked on to the 'Cathedrale Saint Pierre' with its massive Gothic style portico supported by to huge circular columns giving the effect of a medieval fortress. Again it was very warm today so headed back to the town plaza and enjoyed checking out the many, many, many shops; yes there were streets and streets of shops. Then enjoyed McDonald's in the shade. We then rode a tram back to our hotel and took the car down for a look at the local 'Hippo' beach. Many others had the same idea, its a very protected beach with low rise apartments lining the shore. Many families where enjoying the sun and Paul enjoyed his swim too. We decided to eat dinner in tonight and watched the tour de France and Wimbledon. Good day enjoyed Montpellier.
