Tuesday Travels Philly Flower Show & Monaco

I am so excited about the current WIP, TO CATCH A PRINCESS. It is moving along so well and I’m having a blast with it. Only sad part is that I’ve never been to Monaco and so I can’t include any real life experience for you. It looks like such a fabulous place and it’s been on my Bucket List for a while, so hopefully I’ll get there one day.

Right now I’m working on a scene where the hero whisks away the heroine to his family’s villa just outside of Eze, a small town in France. The roads in this area are kind of risky and curvy and with this being a romantic suspense, you just know there has to be some kind of speeding car scene! I won’t say more and ruin it for you.

Here’s a shot of what some of the roads in the area look like! A sure bet for a wild ride.

But now for some more mundane travel right around the corner from home: Philadelphia. I love the city and of course, the annual flower show! This year it was really nice. The theme was Britain and there were some beautiful gardens and flowers to see and smell.

Here are some of my favorite shots. You can see more by clicking here.

Fun Friday – Flash Opera!

Thanks to my buddy Karin for this Friday’s inspiration and video!

As noted on Youtube, “On Saturday, April 24th, the Opera Company of Philadelphia teamed up with the Reading Terminal Market Italian Festival for a large-scale “Flash Opera” event! Over 30 members of the Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus and principal cast members of LA TRAVIATA performed the famed “Brindisi” in the aisles of Reading Terminal Market, entertaining hundreds of Philadelphians, and proving that the perfect accompaniment for all things Italian is a little Verdi! The Opera Company sincerely thanks members of the Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus and cast for generously volunteering their time and talents… BRAVI TUTTI!! LA TRAVIATA runs from May 7 – 16 at the Academy of Music. For tickets/info: 215-893-1018 / 215-893-1018 or go to operaphila.org.”

I can only imagine the shock and amusement as people were eating their cheesesteaks or sticky buns from the Amish!
