Jerry is going to power through today and get out (not feeling 100%). Unfortunately, Diana is not feeling well, so they are stuck inside for the day. Kate needs a rest/off day as well. Per usual, Jerry and I are out earlier than the others and are out mainly just wandering. We had the hotel breakfast as it seems difficult to get breakfast reliably... Places are "open" but only serve food during certain hours (like 7-10:30am for breakfast, then 12:00-2:00pm for lunch and post 7pm for dinner) - they just serve drinks outside of these hours. After wandering long enough to get thirsty we paused for a drink - where we ended up waiting for Phil to join us.

Destination for today will be the Lumiere Museum. It is housed in the family's house and dedicated to the evolution of Motion Pictures and their family's involvement in that (and other things). It is a very pretty house - stain glass windows, murals on the walls, etc (done by the family). They have a lot of really interesting old technology and lots of interactive parts. We had chosen the museum over something else outside because it was a hot day - unfortunately, the museum only had fans (and a thermometer that read 95 degress) - probably the hotest museum I have ever been to (and definitely warmer than outside in the shade).


Another pool day for Jerry and I. And we scooter to meet the group rebounding for dinner. Going to Les Vieux Garcons (The Old Boys), it is a nice place near the main group's hotel and we have an enjoyable and casual meal. One more nightcap for some of the crew to round out the evening.


Another laid back day as people are recouperating and settling in (longer visit so not so rushed).
