On A Clear Day You Can See Forever

Sunday/dimanche morning was one of those BLUE SKIES days I associate with New York. Wearing my bathing suit, enroute to the piscine/pool for the 1st time since March I realized I was too late. Better go to Marché Bastille instead (another 1st time since March). There are many 1st times post-Lockdown.
Most shoppers were masked, behaving correctly, respecting distance.
I always forget what an upper Paris markets are. The COLORS!
What does the smart 
OLDER FRENCH GIRLwear to market? Pretty international. I've yet to get a trollier/granny cart though everyone all ages has one. You can buy more stuff.
The crepe maker is smiling at me smiling at her 
BUBBLE BLOWER. We could all use dancing bubbles in our lives right now non?
The cafes are buzzing with p'tit dej' customers.
A nice morning to linger over coffee and croissant.
I run home and head for the pool. This time I get in. No lines and the pool is not full. The water feels wonderful. So easy to forget...
I always go to Eataly post-pool for salad.
And to look at the pretty bottles and packages. I miss Italy !
My Eataly haul. On the 75 bus 🚎coming home crossing Pont Au Change I want to bust out singing, 
ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER. Have a good, safe week dear PBers 🐻Bear thanks you for your very kind thoughts and support ❤️xxx

    Lovely blue sky day...and look at all those jet contrails...nice that some people still get to fly, sigh. Glad to see so many people wearing masks. Today they become mandatory in France, non? Smart.

    I am delighted that you are open in Paris! It is not the case here in Philadelphia! I am out only for groceries and prescriptions! Enjoy!

  8. I'm jealous that you live near an Eataly. The nearest one to me is a 2 hour drive to Chicago. ;-)

  9. I've enjoyed many a café crème at Café Francais after shopping at Bastille Market. I love the varieties, colors and fun of the market.

    I went nuts over the magnificent green beans in the market photo.
    And now I cannot get the melody of your headline out of my head.
    Hahaha
    Glad Bear is happy.

    1. Green beans/haricot vert are the legume of choice here
      Not pour moi...difficult to cook them correctly imho..they can quickly become too soggy or too raw...
