Hitting the ground running

{Mom and accordion player at market}

     My mom arrived on Saturday night after a near 24 hour travel day of delays, bad weather and in-flight spilled condiments. (Between me and you, I think she learned that nothing good can come from squeezing those little dressings packets too hard that accompany sandwiches.) But since she is only here for a little over a week, we hit the ground running. On Sunday, we packed in a few walks, the local market and dinner down by the water. But wait.. after the market, we literally stumbled upon the city flea market. I was hoping it was going to be the kind of flea market where one can find vintage Louis bags or some great antiques, but not so much. It was more of a 'junk' bonanza, still entertaining though. Thankfully the weather has realized that it is May and started acting appropriate so enjoying the outdoors is possible again. It is a breath of fresh air to be in a city that has so many things to do either in it or near it, makes having guests easy breezy. Now, if we can just fit all what we want to do in the next few days... Italy, Nice, Monaco, Eze...
