Let's start off the weekend with a Walk on the Beach Boardwalk, a la Francaise!

Please note this last minute change because of the triathlon in Mission Beach. We will meet at 9:45 a.m. in Pacific Beach in front of Kono's Cafe (704 Garnet Avenue, 92109) next to the Crystal Pier on the Boardwalk. First, we'll walk south to Hamel's Surf Shop (708 Venture Place, 92109) in Mission Beach and then return to the Crystal Pier. We can then stop for a coffee/drink at Kono's Cafe (704 Garnet Avenue, 92109) after the promenade.

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...)
