One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things - Henry Miller

Bonjour/Bon soir Monsieur and Mademoiselle
We have spent the day in the French Riviera and enjoyed it... Was fascinated by the number of luxurious boats of all sizes and the number of luxurious hotels..have never seen so many big flash boats in one definitely is a playground of the rich and famous...We saw the hospital where Angelina had the twins... Elton John’s Riviera home...Greta Garbo’s home...the names dropping could go on and on.
We came ashore in Cannes like the poor relations in our tender boats and began our tour of Nice and St Paul de Vence. We saw old Nice from “The Little Train”...Hobo 1 was flabbergasted by the extent of the bird population(brown nosed tits) on the stony beach...there is no sand on the beach only small rocks...looks a most uncomfortable place to sunbake.
We lunched at St Paul de Vence ... Hobo 2 was flaggergasted by her seafood salad lunch...a very tasty work of art!
We are now on our way to Barcelona tomorrow...our reception will probably depend on the result of tonight’s soccer semi-final! (Looking favourable with the Spain having just scored in the 73 minute)
Au revoir until demain!
