Today we went to Nice and walked the market, ate lunch and walked along the beach. It was beautiful and lovely and felt just like a vacation should. To see some family photos see my flickr.

Day one in Cannes was a success: pain au chocolat, beach, baguette & cheese, walking the boardwalk / riding carousels, gnocchi & rosé. Below are a few photos from our first day. Above is the World Trade Center from JFK before takeoff.

space program: mars

Sunday afternoon (after regretfully canceling a beach day) a friend invited me to see an exhibit that I had been dying to see. The Tom Sachs Space Program: Mars exhibit was one of the most delightful shows I have seen. There could not have been a better inclement weather activity.

I had the pleasure of meeting photographer Pascal Perich this morning and as we were looking through his portfolio he told me Richard Serra's instructions for viewing one of his sculptures:

I bought this cross-stitch iPhone case over the weekend and cross-stiched this bright green heart on it. Fun huh? There are more colors at Purl Soho!

The weather wasn't quite as good as I had hoped, so my original beach plans for Saturday were canceled. But Sunday morning rolled around and it was gorgeous outside. A few of us went out to Coney Island to spend the afternoon in the sun, eating Nathan's hot dogs and even taking a trip on one of the newer roller coasters.

After eyeing these Madewell sandals for the past two months, I finally got them last weekend while shopping with my mom while she was visiting (thanks mom!). 

Don't forget to sign up for the beach tour emails if you want updates on visiting New York area beaches this summer (the first email is going out tomorrow).
