Golden light glistens where the sky touches the sea. The quaint beach town is pulsing with verve. The market has started. As you begin to stroll through you are overcome with a bouquet of peach pit, jasmine, vanilla and salty ocean mist. Feeling drawn to the rhythmic music near the pier, you pass a heaping display of caramel corn and then pause to purchase a freshly baked baquette before joining the crowd and clapping along.
