A Monte Carlo Summer - Morning Light


It's nine in the morning - you see Cap Martin, the hills of Menton. Italy is just beyond. We are in the main port of Monaco - Port Hercule. The sun is already quite hot.

On the larger yachts, crew members are busy cleaning. The fishermen have brought in their catch. Visitors are still sleeping or perhaps breakfasting on their terraces.

Monaco is waking up.

And Jilly's out with her camera, snapping anything that moves for our delectation and enjoyment.

I am here on my balcony in Monaco, sipping my coffee and enjoying a sinfully delicious chocolat croissant. What a beautiful view I have of the boats.
I owe it all to Jilly!

And there you were; capturing the harbor's beauty. Seven hours later, I sip my coffee and view this virtual scene before I start my work day....wish I were there!
