Sorry to say I was technically challenged and could not seem to get meal photos on the same page as the art photos....so here goes. First a big basket of crudités that were accompanied by both an anchovy sauce (very salty) and rémoulade.

St. Paul de Vence
It is a sunny and beautiful Sunday in Nice...light and fresh air are streaming in through the open windows in Timothy Smith's office. We are sipping coffee, chattering, taking photos, clipping dead blossoms from balcony flowers and listening to the sounds in the Port. The resident dove was on the windowsill awaiting her handout when … Continue reading St. Paul de Vence

On Tuesday afternoon we took the #81 bus from Nice along the coastal highway to Villefranche sur Mêr. It is just a ten minute ride from here, spectacular vistas at every bend in the road both back towards Nice, across to Cap Ferrat, and ahead to the charming old, old village that was our destination. … Continue reading Villefranche sur Mer

Which brings me to a little tale that began a week ago last night. That's when our flights arrived, late in … Continue reading Seeds…Susie…Lovey
Google’s Header in France Sunday
I forgot to post this on Sunday, Election Day. This was the masthead for Google in France.
One of the wonderful department stores in France is Galeries Lafayette. Yesterday we took the tram (a first) to Place Massena and ventured forth for a little window shopping at the Nice store. Pictured above is a display of chairs, handbags, shoes and accessories in the current African springtime theme. The design ideas were presented … Continue reading Galeries Lafayette
