Nice, France

I am back with day two of my travels to the south of France.  Our first and last day was spent in Cannes and today I am going to show you Nice.  Probably my favorite city in the south that we saw, it was incredible.  It has the beauty and splendor of a city on the sea and yet is still rich in history like most European cities.  We were able to visit some Roman ruins too, I'll show that a bit later so that we aren't on complete picture overload!

The most fun was skipping rocks on the Mediterranean Sea.  The beaches were rocks and the were the best skipping rocks out there!  As you can imagine, the boys loved it. 





My parents, me and Tae at the top of a castle we climbed the million stairs to.  Lots of stairs, but beautiful city view!  To the right is the Simmons family in the city center.  As you can see, Eli had a hard time taking his eyes off the gelato ice cream for the picture.  Can we blame him?  I think not.  I enjoyed mine as well...


We were able to find the Marche aux Puces, which means - you guessed it - flea market!  It was fabulous.  So many treasures.  Unfortunately, the Nice flea market is considered more up scale and up scale treasures weren't really on my shopping list.  My mom got some beautiful old tea spoons.  It was incredible all the items they had!


These are my favorite pictures.  My and the hubs on the Mediterranean.  Love it.  We have been some pretty cool places together, I would love to make a photo book of pics like this.  Beautiful background and one pretty handsome man!  I think I am blessed!

This is Nice from the castle we climbed.  Can you see what I mean?  Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.  I could have stayed there forever.  This has to be top of my list, best vacation ever.

What is your dream vacation?  If time, work, money, family wasn't an issue, where would you go and what would you do?

Nice is certainly one of my fav places in France. The Chagall gallery alone makes it worth while. I'm off to Thailand in a few weeks...I hope it's as dreamy as I think it is~

Gorgeous! It would be fabulous if you put together an album of you and your husband in all these places.
I love that you skipped rocks on the mediterranean...sounds so exotic and yet normal. :)

I've not been there (yet!) but am hoping on a future visit, we'll be able to get to the south of France. There are so many beautiful photos in this post (of the city but also of you and your lovely family)! Glad you had a wonderful trip :)

Beautiful, Natalia! I once spent a week in the Azores. I'd love to go again! And a bit easier on the wallet: I've always wanted to go to New Orleans. But really, anyplace on the water and I'm happy :-)
