A glimpse through the trees...


This is such a typical Riviera view especially when taken - as this is - in Cap d'Ail, which adjoins Monaco. These same sort of views, same beautiful houses, same wonderful trees are to be seen at Beaulieu, just a little further along the coast towards Nice - or at Cap Martin near to Menton.

I had to take my dog to the vet this morning in Cap d'Ail. Afterwards, a short stroll with a friend who lives there - plus our dogs - and here, a glimpse through the trees of that Riviera view.

Could you ever get so used to that view as to take it for granted?
I'l be willing to visit the residents and find out...all in the name of good journalism ;-)

Anybody wants to sponsor me?

(hope Beau is OK!)

isabella, I can see I'm not going to win the bored argument! Beau has yet another abscess...he came on the walk tho and enjoyed it. Now waiting for it to burst. He's OK tho. Stoic in his old age.

Yes, looks like something from an F Scott Fitzgerald, or Hemingway, or Picasso life! House parties, drinks on the terrace, cocking a snoot at the Great Depression....
