Let's start off the weekend with a Walk on the Beach Boardwalk, a la Francaise!
That's right, we'll meet in Pacific Beach in front of the French Gourmet restaurant (960 Turquoise Street, 92109) at 9:30am this Saturday. We'll walk down to the Lifeguard Station (700 Grand Avenue, 92109) on the Beach Boardwalk and then return to the restaurant starting point. The nearest public parking is four blocks away at Tourmaline Beach (600 Tourmaline Street). We will have the option to stop for a coffee/drink , pastry, or snack at the restaurant after the promenade. Please indicate your interest about the restaurant visit so I can make arrangements by Friday evening.
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 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 www.fromenglishtofrench.com. The rates for the lessons start at $9.99/hr.
