Today was a bit quiet in old town Nice. Most of the major stores were closed but the local shops were busy with many tourists. We strolled to the train station to purchase our tickets for the trip to Marseilles tomorrow. We delayed obtaining the rental car until April 16 since it is difficult to find a parking space in old town and quite expensive if you do find a space. There is more parking available at the promenade apartment so that should work out better. Tomorrow it is supposed to be very nice with the temperature in the mid 60's, it will be a nice day for a 2 1/2 hour train ride along the coast. We have become just like the locals hanging our clothes out the window to dry, yesterday one of the items drifted off in the wind and got lodged in one of the neighbors clotheslines, later it fell to the ground and I was able to retrieve it. Not as convenient as throwing everything in the dryer. The hunt for a coffee grinder continues, Barbara suggested we open a store selling coffee grinders with the coffees, what a concept!
