Marigot market this morning
      #1736135 - 06/21/17 11:42 AM (168.0.84.219)

Went to Marigot Market this morning.



Eric dropped me off and parked in the NON blue zone parking, since we don't have the disc. Success! Found my garnet pendant, which I'm wearing now!




Also found some lovely tiles!









The pictures really don't do the pendant or the tiles justice, but you get the drift.


Today apparently is 'music day' or something to that effect in France. Apparently music all over today, including some children singing at the market, which was nice.



Most of the songs were in French, but one particularly lovely song was the Whitney Houston song, which I can't remember the name of now, but goes "....I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadow.. I found the greatest love of all, inside of me." Great to meet also with JimCandD, who happened to be there.

Back "home" here now and the water is just stunningly beautiful today! Life is good!

Pat--just posted the pictures, just now. Enjoy!

We had a MAJOR disaster just now, Eric broke the corkscrew!!!! That delayed uploading some of the pictures.. Thank god, he found the maid with a replacement, so we're back in business!!

Mort--For the first time in a LONG time, we're planning on going downtown tomorrow, so will get something better to hang it on, as I don't like that ring.. They gave me the ring for free.

You do understand that everything is relative. It could have been going shopping and looking!! And not buying!!! She had no money or CC - this is a good thing!! So if I did not find her and the person did not hold back the item!!!! Ok, just saying -- jewelry and tile???? Come on man!!! Maybe when parking it takes me a looooooooooong time to find her??? Will that work???? Just asking!

Nice pendant! Do you guys have favorite local artist? We've been looking for some local art for years now. I know art is such a subjective thing, but any recommendations might get us started.

Oh Carol! What a beautiful view! I am rather partial to the first tile as it seems it might be reminiscent of Club O and their yellow umbrellas!

You got to get Eric out of those crew socks and into no show or ankle socks.
