The Grand Roue in Marseille

So,  believe it or not I spent a good part of my day going through fabric shops in Marseille, France looking for fabric for a costume for one of the JA here.  It goes to show you I will do all things for the JA here in Marseille.  You should have heard mom try and explain to the sales lady what, "interfacing" is.  Translate that word.  Mom is doing a service project by making a dress/costume for one of our JA for the CAJAF (Young Adult Conference).  in Bordeaux next week.  So by the end of the day we needed a break.  We took out normal break at the Corniche and watched the fairy's  to Algeria, Tunisia and Corsica go by.  After the sunset we went down to the Grand Roue to get some pictures.   Reluctantly I agreed to go on the Grand Roue.  This is one big freaking Farris wheel. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a fear of heights.   I will also do anything for my wife who loves Farris wheels.

Proof that I did it.  That stupid look on my face is fear. 

Jared will appreciate this photo.   The long string of lights is the Corniche along the water front where Jeannine and I sit and discuss the JA.  Jared would join us and we would watch the fairy's pass and the sunset each night.
