Last holiday snaps!

Just a last selection of our holiday snaps to Nice,France.The promenade is beautiful here decked out all along with these private beach areas where you pay a daily rate for your parasol and sunloungers.It is totally worth the experience as you get waiter service for your refreshing cold drinks or food and you also have bathroom/changing/shower facilities,the best seats in the house looking out on the blue mediterranean sea!

Posing on the prom!
My ship finally came in!
Menton,another day trip on the bus from Nice,next stop and you are in Italy!
Beautiful Villefranche,just a short bus ride out of Nice.
We travelled everywhere on these lovely local buses for the sum of 1 Euro!
The second largest Galeries Lafayette outside of Paris is this one in Nice.
