Collioure on a Sunny Friday

Mike and I took a long needed break for the day to visit a seaside town just above the border of Spain. It was well worth the time. This is where Matisse, Picasso, Chagall and many others came to create and soak in the beauty of the catalan coast.

We had lunch at La Cote Vermeille which was in the fishing port of Port Vendres. It was a beautiful and truly fun lunch right by the port. The best was the starter of a saffron fish soup with a dollop of savory cold ice cream. The contrasts of tastes and temperatures just made me laugh with joy. The roasted tuna entree was simply amazing! I love the food in France!!
