~ THE FRENCH RIVIERA ~ With PHOTOS!

Now with photos

sunny 23 °C

It's Sunday 15th, today, my final day & night in Nice, I don't really want to leave here. I've already extended my stay by two nights and had to cut two nights off Madrid as a result. But its been worth it cause I had a totally amazing day yesterday and plan to enjoy today as well.

Thursday ~ 12th October ~ Monaco to Cap D' Ail

On Thursday I met two women, Morine and Karren (2 Lovely Canadians) down in the lobby area and was thinking about where I wanted to go for the day. They mentioned what they were doing and so i asked if I could join them.

We took the bus to Monaco Port and then searched for the beginning to a pathway. Once we finally found it, (wasn't too difficult because Morine can speak French) It was totally amazing. 100_4448.jpg

The water was so blue and its just fabulous around there. We probably followed this pathway round for about 1 or 2 hours. (I cant remeber, time doesn't seem so relevant at the moment)
The walk was lovely I took heaps and heaps of photos just like you see in the travel books.

We arrived at our destination which was an absolutly wonderful secluded little beach in a cove. Called Cap d' Ai. We went for a swim and it was really really beautiful. The water is quite salty, perhaps thats why its so clear? But It was lovely. Its easier to float and I just had a fabulous time.

Behind me is the cove where I swam, but its not such a clear photo.

After the beach we cause the bus back to Nice and I went shopping and for an ice cream in Veux (old) Nice. Old Nice is really amazing!! And the Ice cream stands have so so many flavours. I had marsipan, cassis (which I think is cherries) and Violet. Don't ask me how they make it taste like violet but it was really interesting.
It was just a wonderful day all around. Lovely weather too.
