Ville Vieux

Today, the weather is wonderful, the storm is over, the sun is out and all is right with the world (except for Thailand and a few other problem spots around the world). This morning we walked into the old town to visit the market, it is such a wonderful place, full of aromas, beautiful flowers, produce, cheeses, spices and baked goods. We purchased some local olive oil, flavored spices and salt to bring back with us. People are on the beach, strolling the promenade, skating, riding bicycles and the Japanese tourists are photographing everything. We are doing our best to try every wine from Provence but failing miserably, just too many options! Tomorrow, on the spur of the moment, we decided to visit the Frejus Faire, a fair that has been going on for over 400 hundred years, provided there are no rail worker strikes we should have a wonderful day in an ancient town about one hour from here by train.
