Luncheon In Paradise

Gorbio 2014-08-28 3

Jimmy Buffet sang of cheeseburgers in paradise. Quelle horreur! On Thursday we had a two and a half hour, three course lunch with a bottle of Provençal rose, a few coffees, a visit from the house cat and many, many photographs. The photo on top is my starter

The venue was Restaurant Beausejour in the mountain hamlet of Gorbio, looking over the town of Menton, The Mediterranean and, unfortunately, the A8 motorway.  We stayed in Menton when we were last in the area two years ago. Our companion was our friend and colleague Jilly Bennett of Menton Daily Photo. One could not imagine such a pleasant afternoon in the U.S. No experience at home can compare. Nous aimons la France.

Many more pictures of Gorbio to edit.

Beautiful photos of such a wonderful day we all spent together. Thanks so much for driving up to Gorbio, Bob and Carolyn. And come back soon! it gives me so much pleasure to know you love Gorbio - and of course the Beausejour - as much as I do. x

To have lunch in France will always stay in your mind. I love it, all the delicious food and the ambiances, it is heaven.

All are lovely, but the top three are especially good. Even though I am not fond of melon, that appetizer would work just fine for me.
