Sunday morning. I'm feeling like I'm over jet lag. It's true that the jet lag coming this way, from France to the U.S., isn't nearly as bad as the lag you feel when you fly from the U.S. to France. There's some explanation for the difference that has to do with flying with as opposed to against the movement of the sun.
I do know that it's Earth that moving, not old Sol. Even here in North Carolina, we know that. Speaking of sun, it was bright sunny here on the Carolina coast yesterday, with temperatures approaching 65ºF. That's about 18ºC. Warm.
As for photos, I haven't taken any yet. I'm still working on the ones I took in Paris. Here are a few. In the evening, I took a walk across the Seine, past Notre Dame (the cathedral) and the Hôtel de Ville (Paris city hall). There too, the weather was pleasant.
This afternoon I plan to go to the beach with my sister and her granddaughter. It's supposed to be another warm, sunny day, and it'll be fun to take a walk on the strand. The beach here is 40 km long, running basically east-west, facing south.
That surprises people because (1) this is the East Coast, and you'd expect a beach to run north-south and (2) 40 km! 25 miles. It's a long stretch, and if you want to you can walk the whole length of it.
Maybe I'll start taking some pictures today. So far, I've been content just to visit with family members. I ran into an old high school friend at the supermarket yesterday. I didn't recognize her, and she didn't recognize me, but my mother introduced us. It's been nearly 45 years since we graduated.
At the drugstore, my sister and I ran into a cousin who grew up with us. He told us to call his brother and tell him to get some oysters. Then we can have a North Carolina oyster roast one evening this coming week. Doesn't that sound good?
