|Back gate where I got MA into Vence old town|
We decided to get out of the apartment today via the wheelchair I rented for Mary Alice. We've had it a couple of days now and M.A. is used to it. The weather was beautiful this morning; bright blue sky and temp in the low 70's. MA wanted to get in the car, park in a pay parking lot and let me push her into the old village. I convinced her I could handle the wheelchair on the incline and we could go into the old walled village through the back gate, about 40 yards from our apt. After breakfast we began the task of getting up a stepped incline and 10 steps to the parking lot. One of the residents, Stephen from Munich, Germany, helped us with the wheelchair and getting her to the parking lot. At the parking lot all I had to do was push her into the old town. The back gate is about 40 yards from the parking lot.
|Coffee at Henry's|
Once we got into the village and up to "Henry's" Nola was waiting for us. We had coffee at their favorite table and watched the people go by. It was "market day" in Vence and I excused myself and walked around the corner into the Friday market. Local residents bring their vegetables and fruit, and other stuff into town, set up a table and sell their produce. One of the ladies who I call "the vegetable lady" had the nicest lettuce and tomatoes. I asked her if I could take her picture and she said yes, however she would not look at me. I also got eggs and picked up a loaf of bread at the boulangerie.
|Lunch at La Victorie|
After Randy joined us at Henry's we decided to have lunch across the street at La Victorie. The wait staff made room for MA's wheelchair and she and I split a Margarette pizza (cheese pizza). It was good to get out of the apartment and good for MA's recovery. She is doing fine and making progress every day.
