Since Natalia was still getting over jet lag, we decided to spend the day relaxing on the beach. I’ll just say nobody objected. On the beach in Mon Neglia, you can rent a beach chair for the whole day, for only 5 euros.
We rented four chairs, then left Natalia to tan while Max, Julian, and I began the construction of a world record breaking sand ditch. Dad then headed out to get some lunch for a beach picnic. When dad returned with baguette sandwiches he told us about the complicated process he went through to get the food. First Dad went to what appeared to be a delicatessen, however the owner did not speak much English. After a lot of hand signs dad finally conveyed to the owner that he wanted sandwiches. The shop owner said of course she could make sandwiches, but dad would need to get the bread. Dad then walked to a bakery, picked up some baguettes, and headed back to the deli where he picked out some prosciutto, salami, local cheese, and marinated artichokes and onions as sandwich toppings. The shop owner fixed the sandwiches, then dad brought them back to the beach, needless to say they were delicious! We lounged on the beach for the rest of the afternoon. Then in the evening we went for pasta at another local restaurant. I think after an entire day of lying on the beach and eating great food Natalia completely recovered from jet lag!
