Speak FRENCH and WALK on the BAY

Let's start off the weekend with a Walk on the Bay, a la Francaise!

That's right, we'll meet at Mission Bay in front of the Visitor Center (2688 East Mission Bay Drive, 92109) at 9:30am this Saturday. We'll walk south along the Bay to Fiesta Island and then return to the Visitor Center. After the promenade, there will be an option to go for coffee/drinks/pastry at Caffee Vicino (2615 Denver Street, 92110) in nearby Bay Park. Otherwise, bring a thermos. 

 The main focus is to speak French, meet new people, and enjoy the bay in the morning. We will mostly be speaking in French, so this is for average to advanced speakers. But if you are learning and want to listen in, pas de probleme.

Wearing your French beret, French maid outfit, and bringing a bucket of French fries is highly recommended, but absolutely optional. :D

Though, please note, dogs are not allowed at the bay (even if you carry it).
They even asked me to leave because they thought I was a...'St. Bernard.'

We will wait about 10 min. before leaving for the walk. So you can catch up with us if you are late.

PS - If you don't RSVP you won't be able get last minute notices as in cancellations, time/location changes, etc...)


This meetup is always free of charge and generously sponsored by Sophie Juster, a certified french teacher from Paris. Check out her site at www.fromenglishtofrench.com. The rates for the lessons start at $9.99/hr.

    The venue was changed for Saturday's walk at 9:30. I enjoyed this better, easier to get to, not as many cyclists. I think it's a nice change. Enjoyed my walk.

    Today (August 10), I showed up at 9:30 am in front of Hamel's, but no one was there for the Walk on the Beach. Was it cancelled or something?

      The location was changed on Tuesday evening, August 6th. If you made a reservation or checked the web site after Tuesday, you would have received an update or noted the location change. Sorry.
