Looking back:  the Marseillan fishing village seen through a barge porthole on the Thau Lagoon, the second largest lake in France.

Clothing Advice from Grand-mère
The temptation is to dress lightly in April, but it's a capricious and chilly month. Best to heed the old French dictum:

En avril, ne te découvre pas d'un fil.
In April, don't take off a thread; or "Til April's dead, change not a thread."

une péniche:  a barge
un hublot:  a porthole              
un lac:   a lake
une lagune:  a lagoon
se decouvrir:  to take off
un fil:  a thread
