A Bit O'Fun...

Just a few fun bits of life in the South of France....

Moving day. (not mine)

This would actually be a great way to move in  NYC....this is how they move people rather than go up and down the narrow stairs.  And the INCREDIBLY small elevators aren't an option.

T's been learning to play chess with his dad.  Here he's passing on the info to E.

E was having a tea party.

Our new Sunday ritual.  Instead of pigging out on pastries everyday, I take Charlie on a long morning walk on Sunday to the best bakery, La Gache, and we indulge on the terrace.  Much better for the waistline!!

E's getting pretty good on her scooter.

This guy picks up the dog poopies left by naughty dog owners.  It's actually a ticketed offense to leave your poop behind, but they still employ someone to suck it up when you do!

All the colorful little boats are ready for summer fun.

This is the way a daddy at E's school brings his daughter.  She rides in the  basket!  I'd have the  picture to prove it but I was too shy to snap it.

Yes, that man's dog is riding on teh scooter with him!!  I wouldn't be surprised if they make helmets to fit the dogs in this country!

With the bright color of our car it's soooo easy to find it!  Can you?  Btw...aren't these Monaco garages clean?!?

I'm not so Sarbucks starved now that I've found Emilie's take-out.  They also have AWESOME cupcakes!
E tried mussels and liked them.  She's a pro now with pinching them out.

The restaurants are so dog friendly. :)

They actually have some one who goes around and cleans the traffic lights.  Do they do that anywhere else??

Almost everyday we see a cool old fashioned car.  Here's a super cool Bugatti parked next to us.

J rarely drinks beer, so when he ordered one and this is what he received we had a good laugh!  It's a Big Gulp!

T's order at the same cafe. :)

Our version of NYC's Naked Cowboy.  Certainly not as well built, and a bit of a nutter, but just as infamous in the Cours Saleya.  He adopts a band and dances in front of them as their "added attraction".  Not sure how much they like it, but he sure draws crowds.

Summer Solstice brought about the "Night of Music" with bands popping up ALL over Nice.  Our "Dancing Cowboy" adopted this band for the night.

Just some of the fun and funny here in Nice. :)
