|Monoco From the Train Window|
After the market we went to the beach around 12:00 and stayed until 5:00. The beach we went to is about a mile walk and a nice change from the beach right next to where we are staying. The whole beach is a pebble beach which sounds uncomfortable but it is actually nice to lay on. We all got to much sun but had a blast. I swam as far as I could offshore before I felt like the swim back would be too tiring. There are no waves or current and it is so easy to swim far out. The water here is so clear and you can see underwater with your eyes open. I have been taking runs around the fort and through the marina. I stop at all the benches and do jump squats and think of you MOM. The view is so pretty that I keep tripping over rocks.
In our hotel there is a little fish pond running through the courtyard. It is full of coy and big goldfish. One is so fat and pregnant that it looks like it could pop. We named her Marigold. When we were leaving this morning she was belly up on the bottom of the pond. Then when we came back 7 hours later she was just swimming around. I think she came back to life because we had a moment of silence for her....haha
Tomorrow we are going to a town in Italy that has a huge market that lines the shore from 8-1. We have to take the 7:52 am train so we are resting up. I am officially sick of wine. They drink it all day everyday. I will Blog tomorrow night then I won't be on my computer again until monday because we are going to Port Cros where we will be roughin' it; scuba diving, hiking, snorkeling and of course eating delish french food! BEST!
