FRIDAY's FAVORITE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. Finally my suitcase was ready and my little baby computer too, plus the instructions to give to Mr. G. although they are always the same. Men have short memory ! So I was ready for the holidays in the South of France.
2. I had a smooth flight and arrived with 20 min advance in Marseille, where I had to wait a little for Claudie and her husband to pick me up. I saw their new built house for the first time. It's very beautiful there are still lots of little works to do but it's perfectly habitable.
3. We went visiting the charming little town of Ollioules (see posts below) and did some shopping too for the house. We bought curtains for the kitchen and other little things. They look very nice.
4. There is a market in the next little town Sanary at the sea and it was very folklore ! We bought fish and a table cloths which while we had coffee on the terrace of a restaurant, somebody stole from me ! So I had to buy a new one ! Disgusting. I had put the bag besides my seat, and somebody just took it !
market, the two of us, the new curtains, fish market and daugher Melissa with a plate of urchins
In the evenings it's a little cool but we burn wood in the oven and it gives a very charming heat.
Claudie had prepared the fish with tomatoes and slices potatoes all together in the stove and the fish was so fresh I thought it would jump off my plate !
Claudie took me to Seyne s/mer a little town near her place with a wonderful white sandy beach. We could sit outside and had a coffee, walked along the seafront and even visited a museum of modern art up in the hills. Apparently I am not intellectual enough, but this kind of modern art looked real ridiculous. There were circles in all colors and framed sexy briefs with nice words like "bitch" or "slut" written on them. Maybe some men want to hang them in their office !
I can only say time flies by too quickly !!
