Change of Plans

Obviously, the events of the “Unforgettable Road Trip” lead to some changes in plans, but it also lead to more blessings.  Jon picked up the car in the morning and the cost was less than they quoted us, how often would that happen in the States…umm never!  And to our surprise the total price also included a full tank of gas!  More blessings!

The next challenge was driving to the Toulon-Hyères airport, thank goodness for GPS!  We arrived and the car rental offices were closed for lunch, so what else can you do but go to the one restaurant in the airport and enjoy lunch!?!  Once the offices reopened at 2pm, we were fully prepared for extra charges for bringing the car back a day later.  Jon told them the whole story and you know what!  They said, okay no problem, the car is fine, no extra charge!!!  Say What!!  Seriously, more blessings!

Now, we had no where to go at this point, so we got on the bus to Toulon city center and decide to find a hotel for the night and come up with a new plan.  We were so pleasantly surprised with Toulon.  We wandered around for a few hours and the city is beautiful.  We found a great cafe that had a live jazz group and enjoyed the music for a few hours, trust me we needed to just relax and do nothing.  We are still getting over the stress!

We were cracking up, this little guy went up to the fountain, pulled down his pants and started peeing!  When he finished he ran by us with the biggest smile on his face!  Classic!
