Peace in a Garden


It's Theme Day and deciding on 'my favourite part of town' wasn't easy. So much depends on one's mood. You can sit on the terrace of the Cafe de Paris and watch the world go by, you can wander Port Hercule and drool over the mega yachts, you can stroll le rocher and enjoy the narrow ancient streets and the beauty of the cathedral or you can do what we are doing today - sit in a garden and absorb the peace.

Monaco has many beautiful gardens - my favourites are the Saint Martin Gardens on le rocher and this one - the Japanese Gardens on Avenue Princess Grace with views of the Mediterranean through the trees.

How wonderful to have so many choices! YOur choice today underscores the healing power of nature.

For a small city (and country) you do indeed have many choices. My nomination would be the garden next to the Oceanographic Museum, with views of the sea.

Dave yes, that's the one I mentioned - the Saint Martin's Garden. I just didn't have a new photo of it so used this instead.

You've shown us so many wonderful sights from here. I can see that it would be impossible to choose a perfect spot. This is a beautiful choice.

This gives me a different image of Monte Carlo than what I typically imagine the place. Great spot for relax, btw. Although, cafe sounds good as well.

Looks very peaceful. Just the place to take a nap whilst listening to the trickling of the water
