Speak FRENCH and WALK on the BAY

 Let's start off the weekend with a Walk at Mission Bay, à la Francaise!

That's right, we'll meet at Mission Bay in front of the Visitor Center at the end of Clairemont Drive at 9:30am this Saturday. We'll walk south to Fiesta Island and return to a site (see map) near our vehicles for a friendly picnic potluck. The normal promenade along the Boardwalk was crowded (with parking issues) this past Saturday and so we are relying on an alternative meet-up location for this weekend. Bring a chair/blanket if you are attending the potluck. Please indicate your potluck entree on your reservation to avoid duplicates at the picnic.

 The main focus is to speak French, meet new people, and enjoy the beach 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 Mission 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 The rates for the lessons start at $9.99/hr.

    I'm going to try and make it tomorrow (Saturday, 27th). I just move to S.D. 5 months ago from San Francisco. I' m so glad I found someone that teaches French.
