Thanks for the art market photo!


There has been a bit more art along the beach - like in 'real' summer :wink:

The sea front here stretches over a couple of miles - called "La Croisette"

The film festival attracks quite a few famous actors, who made their handprints in stone near the festival hall

So I'd walked from the other side of the bay ...

Before I took the very same bus to drive back to the station and to Nice, some more pics taken while I was waiting at the bus stop ...

Back in Nice I remebered that I hadn't seen the port there besides from above.

The church and buildings at the Place de l'Île-de-Beautée. facing/siding the port

There are regular ferry services to Corsica from Nice, and quite often cruise ships start from here.

Like last Sunday: a former German ship, still with Germa´n crew .... and four coaches with passengers from my region just had arrived

And so beer and food came - "of course" - directly from Germany, too.

This thread is a breath of fresh air.

It is dull and grey here this time of year. This reminds me of my own trip to Marseille-Nice-Monaco several years ago. Wonderful memories.

Thank you, Walter.

Since it was such a nice evening sun, I not only walked around the harbour ...
but decided to get up to the castle mountain again, on my last day on the Riviera and in Nice.
