A pleasant trip to Crystal Beach, visiting a friend’s cottage, was followed by a welcome surprise.

As we walked up to my loft, I could hear French being spoken through loudspeakers.  I ducked through a hole in the fence and saw a few dozen people in lawn-chairs watching Amelie on a huge inflatable screen.  The strings of lights overhead were also a new addition to this vacant lot that, only a few days before, had tall grass and garbage strewn about.

We set down a blanket and watched the rest of the movie, having missed the first 15 minutes (you can’t have everything).

And I wasn’t wearing my glasses… yet I could still read the subtitles…  for about 1/2 of it…   when I wasn’t playing with the contact juggling ball or taking photos.  😀
