The weather was not too clear. She got up early and walked. She finally played her deck tennis tournament match wit Mr. Calvert against Mrs. Calvert and Mr. Ryder.
Diving was much easier this morning. She stayed an hour a d a half.
She watched the ping-pong tournament, then a boxing match.
She collected money all over first class.
Talked with the English boy..
Watched ping-pong. Played with Libby, Marjorie, orchestra man.
Talked with engineer after dinner in the fog, also orchestra.
Watched a good movie.
Beautiful moonlight on great waves.
After breakfast they went to American Express and joined the tour bus (full) to Versailles. Visited Malmaison, the Palace, Petit Trianon, Temple D’Amour.. Returned to Paris through St Cloud. Detailed listing of the things they saw. Napoleon and Marie Antoinette = many portraits and statues. (It sounds as if they really enjoyed it all.)
Chateau de Malmaison
They went for a long bicycle ride in the morning. They rode along the East Cliff – about the same as the West. They went through towns and rode for miles through woods filled with rhododendron. They went through Christchurch and then to Ringwood – no trees just moors. Heather everywhere. Lunch in Ringwood. When they got back they went down to the beach where she “made an easy pick-up” – Stewart Plantagenet Bishop, a commercial traveler. He and his pal were fast workers. They had a silly time fooling around. My mother writes that it was very good that they were going to France that evening for the boys/men were too fast for Lib and herself.
After dinner they took the train to Southampton and left on the boat to France at 11;15 p.m.
