Speak FRENCH and WALK on the BEACH

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

That's right, we'll meet at the Visitor Center next to Mission Bay at the west end of Clairemont Drive at 9:30 am this Saturday. We'll walk south to Fiesta Island and return to a site (see map) near our vehicles for a friendly potluck picnic lunch. This change of site usually occurs once a month for the Saturday promenade. We will return to the Boardwalk meetup on the 27th.

The main focus is to speak French, meet new people, and enjoy the bayfront 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 this city park (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.

    Twas my first exposure to ze french crowd. Enjoyed a leisurely walk and more than a few patient fellow students helped me immerse into this beautiful language. I'll work hard to be a better contributor in the future. French rocks! Bonjur!

    Another pleasant time spent with wonderful people! Maybe people who like to speak French are good in heart and soul.
