The Cow ready for a Swim


You'll find this cow in the gardens of the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco.  She's called 'Elegante au Bains' and has been decorated by sculptor Anne Quemar.  In 2005 there were dozens of cows all over Monaco. They'd been created by well-known artists and scuptors in aid of charity.  This one was bought by the Baronne Brandstetter and donated to the hospital.

She marks the smoking area in the gardens.

Monaco from the Bateau Bus



A fun way to see Monaco is on the Bateau Bus - the solar powered electric ferry that crosses the harbour and all it costs is 1.50 euros.  An easy and cheap way to pretend you own a super yacht!

On the day I took this (end of June) - you can see ominous clouds hung low over the la Tete du Chien (Head of the Dog) with only pinponts of sunlight on the buildings.

Horse before Cart (Car)


Horses come before cars as they cross the street in Port Hercule.  This beauty was in Monaco last month for the Show Jumping Championships.
