First night madness

Well it was off to Marseille first. We arrived on the Friday and sorted ourselves out, got the hire car, found the hotel etc. And then it was off to the marina to catch up with the boys and watch the opening game of the World Cup. Watched the game in a French bar which was pretty quiet as the Argentinians beat Les Blues. We then met up with the boys at O'Malleys, an Irish bar of course and proceeded to have the traditional first night madness. After a great rendition of Happy Birthday we called it quits around 1am and headed to bed.

After a quick breakfast it was time to don the Scooby and Sylvester outfits and head to the Stadium. We both warmed to the suits after a couple of beers and although it being very warm it was great fun! We hang round the beer tents outside the stadium for a bit before heading in and finding our seats.

What a start for the AB's, they thrash Italy. After what seemed like hundreds of photos we headed back to the beer tents and tried to meet up with everybody. Was amazed at how many French were there in AB jerseys. Decided to let the crowds disperse before we ourselves headed back in to town, plus there was beer there......

On Sunday we headed off to Cassis where we just sat on the rocks and swam in the Mediterranean, nice to relax after a couple of days of madness. Then Muss dropped off Ev and I in Aix where Heidi picked us up and we were off to her and Sean's place for the night. Nice night of chatting, beers, food and petanque. The next morning Heidi dropped us back off in Aix where we had a look round for a bit before Muss picked us up and we headed to Sete for the night. This is a quiet little fishing village on the coast, so we had a feed and some beers which led to us being back in the hotel drinking a bottle of Vodka......

We got up and headed to the beach for the day, where we just relaxed, had a beer or two and swim before heading to Montpellier.....
