Our new home

{Water off Antibes}

     So the last few weeks have been a whirlwind. For one, we picked up and moved back to the South of France, (Antibes to be exact ) and two, we had to get settled back into the European lifestyle. To some that may not seem to be a lot, and we would have to agree. But there is a little time needed to adapt to the 'slow' way of life here, more specifically, having to wait 2 weeks for internet and phone. (Still don't know how those Americans do it having that all set up in, gasp, 1 day. They must tell others their secret.) Anywhoo, we took that time of being disconnected to all things electronic to discover our new area and enjoy getting to know Shaun's new teammates. Fortunately for us, we live in a place with limitless possibilities of things to do and all of Shaun's teammates have an 'up for anything attitude'. So far in the short 2 weeks, there has been lots of memorable moments with a few being some quotes that one would hear in any Vince Vaughn movie i.e. 'I'll throw up, I don't care. I'll do it' or after finishing a drink, one murmurs to himself, 'I am not going to remember this night tomorrow.' I am betting on Frank the Tank coming out, and most likely often, so stay tuned. We've gone to a salsa bar to learn how to dance, wandered the streets of Juan Les Pins enjoying the atmosphere, and even met some new American/Australian/Canadian friends at a local British bar, whew that was a mouth-full. It seems like every time we go to a new place it becomes our 'favorite' until we go to the next, each one surpassing the last. So bear with us if we are a little slow on the blog, we are out exploring...

     With Nice being only 10 minutes away by highway or 20 by the ocean route, we can head over there for dinner or to just soak up the atmosphere there. So last week, we decided to eat out in Nice and enjoy the sunset over the promenade.
