We Drove Into Ajaccio

This is a monument to Napoleon in the central Place De Gaulle. It’s all Napoleon all the time here in Ajaccio, Napoleon’s birthplace. You can even see the couch upon which he was born.

Ah, the Mediterranean Sea. Ingalill, Marita, Jim, Rick.

Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption of Ajaccio, finished in 1593 replacing the former Cathedral of Saint-Croix destroyed in 1553.

Along the side of the Cathedral.

Ajaccio is a lively tourist town with all its Napoleon-ia as evidenced by all the cars and our parking safari and…


…the PORT below.

We had a wander through the Citadelle d’Ajaccio

And everyone was entirely into windows…

…and Laundry.

Rick’s picture. We were going to check out this museum but it smelled bad, of cigarette smoke and mold, so even I, the most enthusiastic to give it a try, gladly moved on to lunch.

You don’t even have to look it up. It’s Napoleon.

We ended the day with a visit to the vegetable market, a delightful swim in the pool, and then bbq burgers and salad for dinner. Ahhhh. Lill and Marita are both still working and they both agreed, vacations are awesome, and retirement doesn’t look so bad either.
