Our 2nd annual Quarantine Island French immersion weekend was once again a success!
There were 18 participants – aged 3 to 75 – and we survived the entire weekend (2 nights!) on the island, speaking French, eating A LOT of French food, drinking a lot of French beverages (there is a little bit of Pastis left), dreaming in French and exploring the island in French.
When we weren’t busy eating, highlights of the weekend included:
- Speaking French with the Dutch keeper and his family and helping them with some jobs on the island,
- Exploring the cave,
- Feeding the ducklings and chickens,
- Participating in the cooking class (also known as “making dinner”),
- Exploring the shoreline on foot and by kayak,
- Playing petanque,
and enjoying a full weekend of French!
Everyone joined in and helped out in the kitchen and around the island. It was wonderful to have a mix of new and returning faces and all were sad to farewell the island on Sunday. Check out the great photos of our trip on Facebook!
