I am still totally shattered from the weekend, so I am not sure that typing a lot will make much sense- I had a non-stop day at work today (eating lunch while typing- I can multi-task) and finally got home at 6.30.
So I am just going to show some photos from Nice- these were taken with my phone so they are tiny, compared to the ones Andy took with his camera (but he has not sorted them out yet).
The beautiful sea.
The beach was pebbles, so we did walk on it some times, but tended to stay on the path bit (promenade?).
A couple of evenings we walked right to the end, and it goes up a bit higher so you have the view of the whole cove (or whatever it is called)- the sun was shining still and I love how it reflects off the water, although the picture didn’t come out too well.
The final day- I could just look at the colour of the sea and sky all day.
There were people sun bathing all the time (plenty of brown and wrinkly leather skin), and we also got caught in a rain/hail/thunderstorm at one point (we had to go back to the hotel, we were soaked through, and as we each only had one pair of shoes with us, had to try to dry our shoes with my hairdryer).
Anyway, it was such a lovely place to visit- very Italian feeling (lots of gelato- yum)- we went to Monaco for the day on the train, and walked around the Grand Prix track (as it was the previous week the grandstands were being packed away still, and a lot of the signs were still up) and then a few other towns on the train on another day. The old town was lovely for a wander, and there was a lovely flower market too. We even went to a modern art museum (how cultured) but I was not really a fan of much of it at all, and a museum of the history of Nice, but it was all in French so I could not translate that much! Anyway, a lovely place to visit.
It might be one of my favourite European places to visit- I love Barcelona, and that has the sea and also loads of parks, but then it also had more of the street hassle. Have you ever been? What is your favourite place in Europe to visit?
