Another beautiful day...
Lots of walking again today. I climbed some twisty stairs to the ruins of a castle overlooking Nice. It's called Parc de la Colline du Chateau. The view of the town is breathtaking especially on such a gorgeous day. Afterwards I wandered in the fruit and flower market resisting the temptation to buy plants! From there grabbed what is considered fast food here, a bagette with tomatoes, basil and mozarella cheese, yum, then headed back to my room for lunch and a nap.
Later in the afternoon I hiked over to the Musee des Beaux-Arts to look at some lovely 19th century and some older paintings and sculptures. One particular artist I found intriguing was work by Gustave Adolphe Mossa. Strange but lovely.
One more day to see Nice then on to Dordogne and to meet Ken. Yay!
