It's a village (pop. 6,331) 19 miles west of Marseilles.  We went to recce the place, mainly how to find it, for the wedding on Saturday.  First we had to be in the mayor's office there at 4 p.m.; second we would all traipse to another village, 6 kilometers away, for the church wedding in Ensues-le-Redonne at 5 p.m.  Carry-le-Rouet is the couple's home village.

Naturally we timed our arrival for a leisurely lunch.  Below is the seafood salad supreme - skewers of scallops and mussels with lobster and deep-fried shrimp and a stuffed oyster.  We both ordered it -  16 Euros each and that's a big piece of lobster!

Lemon tart with meringue for me...

Mousse au chocolate for Richie

Restaurant  Le Scoop, 13620 Carry-le-Rouet - first or second restaurant as you walk into the waterfront; white awnings. Lunch and dessert came to 55 Euros, including the service compris.
