Speak FRENCH and WALK on the BEACH

Let's start off the weekend with a Walk on 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 this alternative meet-up location that we used back in May for busy weekends. Ça sera un jour férié pour nous (à la Bastille?).

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

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.
