French picnic

Good sunny weather so took a break from fixing the house to go to Nice. Most of the day was shopping (for things for the house) but the highlight was buying two baguettes, some cheese, salami, pâté, ham and red wine then heading for the beach between Nice and Antibes for a late in-the-car picnic.

The sea was quite agitated, the waves hitting the stony beach quite hard and high. Hardly anyone there, just some locals packing up their mountain bikes. On days like this the wind pushes away the usual city pollution and you can see how close the Alpes Maritimes really are; today with the snow level down quite low the view was quite impressive.

I didn’t bring my camera with me this time but here is a shot from the same location taken just about a year ago when I came back from Baghdad.
