Nice / Monaco

The owner of our B &B is super nice. We were able to do laundry here which really helped since we could eat breakfast while our clothes were getting clean. We then went out to see Nice – we went to the flower/produce market. This is the European version of a farmers market. Then we walked to the ruins of an old chateau which provided us with a great view of Nice. Here are some pics of Nice during the day.



The last pic is from the top of the chateau. Remember every birdseye picture you see we got to the top by foot. No elevators. It is hot here just like Florida. We stopped for a cool drink in the shade and decided to go to Monaco. Again we hopped on a train. We decided to go to the Casino and they let us in!!!!!! We gambled in the Monte Carlo Casino. SEND MONEY we need some. Actually I lost and Marsha won. There are pics as we look at yachts to see which one she wants. There is nothing level in Monaco. It is either a steep uphill climb or a steep descent. We decided to walk across town to see the palace. Neither the casino nor the palace allowed pics inside but both are magnificent.

We are back at the B&B giving a rest before we go out to find a restaurant. We usually walk along reading menus and when we find a place that we both like, that’s where we eat.
We headed out in a different direction looking for food. We found a pedestrian are full of shops and restaurants. After reading approx 20 menus we found a restaurant that had squash blossoms. We ordered the appetizer for 2 and you can see that was more than enough food. But, there was a cheese plate on the dessert menu and of course we had to order it. All the food was fabulous!!! Of course we went for another walk for the food to settle.
We love your comments. Remember if you want them to appear on the blog please give me your permission to post them since I don’t know what info is put out there with the comment. I am also going to post a picture of our current room. It is big enough to have a serious party in it.




I had to take 2 pics of the room it is that big. Don’t know what tomorrow will bring but we shall see.
