Seborga, Nice, London, Montreal, and Calcium
And thus the delightful trip with knucklehead friends draws to a close. One last morning of drinking coffee on the balcony with the view of the Mediterranean and Monaco, listening to roosters crow and Al bray.

Seborga & San Remo
After such an exciting few days, we decided to start the morning a little different and…lazed around after a leisurely breakfast and shot the shit. Why fix it if it ain’t broke.

Cannes, Nice, and Monaco
This day we broke with our relaxed, zero-plans-ahead way of doing things and actually had a plan. We got going early and headed to Cannes. Then immediately found a place for coffee and baked goods. We do seem to be in a but of a rut, but an exceptionally pleasant one.

San Remo, Italy
Again the day began as usual, with breakfast at the apartment, lazing around with no real plan and good natured bickering.

So day two we made breakfast at the apartment on the hill in Seborga (blue ouvas this day) and sat around leisurely watching the sun illuminate more and more of the valley – most relaxing – before finally deciding that we would spend the day in Monaco.

I spent all of last week in Carlisle, PA, researching slaves in south-central Pennsylvania in the 18th and early 19th century. Young Master Max, the 14-year-old son of a nurse at work, is watching over my chickens. I got home Friday night then drove 3 hours to Montreal on Saturday to fly to Europe.

After the long coolish spring, it has finally warmed up and I had a four-day weekend for Memorial Day, so decided to get in some hiking. So, by this afternoon, I’ve hiked 11 miles and ran 4 miles this weekend. Not bad coming off a lazy winter where I got next to no exercise.
