Speak FRENCH and WALK on the ISLAND

Let's start off the weekend with a Promenade on Shelter Island, a la Francaise!

That's right, we'll meet in Point Loma on Shelter Island at the fishing pier in Shoreline Park (2204 Shelter Island Drive, 92106) at 9:30am this Saturday. We'll walk east in the park along the water's edge to the Bali Hai Restaurant and then loop around to stop at the Point Break Cafe (2743 Shelter Island Drive) for a drink and/or sandwich. After the snack, we will return to the pier.

Directions: Take Rosecrans Street south to Point Loma. Turn left (southwest) at Shelter Island Drive. Continue onto Shelter Island to the roundabout. Go right (westward) past Humphrey's and look for the fishing pier on your left in the park. Public parking is next to the pier.

The main focus is to speak French, meet new people, and enjoy the water front 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 beach/boardwalk (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.

    Hi there. For me, if it's HOT like it has been all week, I will not attend. Last week's walk in the humitidy was enough for me.
    Have fun.
