Chapelle du Saint-Sépulcre de Nice

Picture this: Place Garibaldi

I pass through Place Garibaldi at least twice a week on my way to the market.  Smaller and less grand than Place Masséna, during the warmer months it is a bustling square where you can dine al fresco or people watch while sipping a cold drink.  On the weekends vendors invade the square with their antiques, […]

A sunny weekend chez les parents included a day trip to the beach. Before hitting the waves D and I stopped to visit the Pont du Gard.

Gabriel Boudier Saffron Gin

Picture this: Gabriel Boudier Saffron Gin

It’s no secret: I adore gin.  While some people dedicate their lives and their taste buds to rum — yes, I’m talking ’bout you K — I enjoy a glass of gin now and then.  Not much quenches my thirst or preps my taste buds better than a well-crafted gin & tonic.  (Dare I admit […]

Cheery cherry blossom

Picture this: cherry blossoms

I love cherry blossoms and their delicate sweet fragrance.  Despite the fact that I hate to get up-close-and-personal with bugs of any kind, I will gladly poke my nose into almost any flower.

I remember the first time we drove along the Promenade.  I’d […]

How about some window shades?

Picture this: revisited

Here’s the entire photo.  For my anglophone friends, the advertisement is for a window-treatment company.  I gather the couple in the photo could use new window coverings — a new set of blinds perhaps — to keep their private life private.  I don’t know if the little cat is traumatized by the behaviour of her […]

Food for thought

Picture this

Did you look at this picture?  Are you wondering the same thing I am? D and I pass this sign everytime we drive to Coustellet.  This picture, which is part of a sign for a business, is along the road from Robion to Coustellet.  D and I crack up everytime we see the photo. So, can […]

Champagne aperitif

FFF – Champagne

Champagne is one of my favourite things to drink.  I would drink champagne with breakfast if it was reasonable to do so.  So, I skip champagne for breakfast.  I do enjoy it for apéro all the way through to dessert. Yes folks, champagne is that versatile and while most North Americans enjoy champagne — or sparkling […]
