monday-tuesday on the côte (d’azure!)


Azure is the colour – of-course! Sunday bought plenty of rain – as will tomorrow – but yesterday and today we were out and about. Nice – what to say, I simply loved. Today we hopped into Italy – Ventimiglia – a super market and an old town not for those with a bad head for heights. Considering the weather forecast, I think that tomorrow I may mainly be typing…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Bill glad to hear you enjoyed Nice, my wife and I have been going there each October for the past few years we love it. The trains are a joy between Cannes and Ventimiglia you can always find a secluded spot for lunch. We like to do the Ventimiglia Friday market just for the crowds but this year the train service was closed beyond Menton due to some track issues so we couldnt get there, always next year.

      Thanks Phil
      Yes indeed, really taken with Nice – of-course lovely weather helps!
      A rainy day today, so to Monaco, but if the rain’s heavy enough it’s still not that much fun – tonight is such a show of thunder and lightening…
      Menton is pretty from a distance though lacks some of the (limited) charm of Ventimiglia – particularly the market of the latter – though Menton’s market is not to be sniffed at.
      Tomorrow we return to Beaune and then Friday evening back in Bern. But we will be leaving early tomorrow for brunch in St.Tropez – the forecast is good – but not enough that I’ll be taking a dip!
