Côte d’Azur, Antibes

I’m staying in a tiny Airbnb apartment with an appropriate tiny balcony. (This is a good exercise in living small.) It’s in a funky old and dark building up four flights of stairs, and another ladder to the sleeping loft, so I’m doing some serious calorie burning. It’s very quiet, which is so nice.

I took off this morning around 8:30 and the town was deserted, perhaps because people were sleeping off last night’s revelries? Of the countless boats in the harbor, I came across only one awake human being. We made eye contact, so I naturally said bonjour, but he might have been too rich to respond – he just turned away from me. There is so much wealth here!

Later I wandered the town and the market, and had lunch at a too-expensive vegan restaurant run by an American expat. She says it’s hard to live, hard to get things done, in France.

Here are some photos. There will probably be more later; I just want to take advantage of up and running internet now.

  1. Yes, N, Cote d’Azur -wealth, boats, leisure. “Hard to get things done in France.” (Shades of Hawaii County/Volcano.) Snub when you greet a guy in his language. Screw him and his snobbish friends. France and other rich places are full of them. Was that truly a rhinocerous on a beach in a B&W photo? Lovely Sunday morning here. I just finished my ORGANOGOLD Cafe Mocha, solo, on my back lanai, soaking in the morning sun. Wish you were here to chat (in English). Caught a noisy coqui a couple nights ago, next to my wood pile, which had hitch-hiked on my P/U from Kalapana. Your life in France is vastly more interesting than dis heah village. Keep doing what you are doing. D

  2. Wow wow wow …. not bow wow wow!

    Your photos make me feel like I’m stepping into some of the French films I’ve seen! And altho it is “work” to travel in France, still, seeing vacation photos just transfers a sense of relaxation upon me.

    what’s the temperature there now on the s coast?

    Thanks! Nan
