Bastille Day for real day

I know it took me awhile but wow it's been busy. So a little retro blogging is in order. I celebrated my first Bastille Day in New York a few weeks ago. You do know Bastille Day right? It is officially  La Fete Nationale in France and it commemorates the 1790 storming of the Bastille, a fortress prison and was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation. What does that mean for us now? A Festival of course!! And a Petanque Tournament in the middle of a Tribeca Street. And Can Can dancers and Jazz bands! Free hats and parasols! Oh and a guillotine to make it all the more realistic. Or something like that.

Let the games Begin!!

Good Sports but very serious.

Measuring. No cheating!

How do you keep track of your balls?

For the losers of the Petanque Tournament. :)

Mmmm St Germain, my favorite.

Tout va Bien.....yes, yes it is.
