Just getting going

Finally feel like we are here, today, the cold, rainy, dark days left, finished jet lag, my crud is gone, and finally my camera/computer gear are tip top shape now, I hope, Took a week of fumbling forward for both of us. Ok adventure starts now. The crud had a deep hold on me, I think the fresh moist air and sleeping in for a couple days till my internal clock got reset.

We took the 1 euro bus about 15 minutes west to Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, a most gorgeous bay, step hills up to castles, small little out door cafes over looking the sea, I tried to order something most interesting in French, the waiter brought me a pizza with anchovies, I will get better. People watching here brings us smiles everyday, we stop along the street at some outdoor cafe, order a rose wine, or expresso, and everyone passes has French style, makes me want to start smoking Gaulise, people with their dogs, all cafes have dog in them, behaved dogs, we have seen 100s, not one bark, very civilized dogs, even in the butcher store we see people with their dogs, everyone has a relaxed, stylish, way about them.

The photo is of David Niven home, the actors home here in Cap Ferrat, the second picture is of Nice, in summer this would be crowded, off season people walk around with heavy coats when it is 50, today it had to be 65.warm The next picture is of a one seater electric car and Eliz. And my drawing table and French homework.
