High Seas in Monaco

We've taking a one-day break from our visit to the Riviera Palace to bring you a weather report...

There's been a massive rain amount of rain in the south of France and Monaco - really awful flooding in the Var with hundreds of people being evacuated and tragically two deaths.

Here's the beach near to the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel yesterday. I snapped it looking down from the main road to Menton which is above the tennis courts.

Tomorrow: back to the Riviera Palace...

Wow! I'm sorry to hear about the affect on the people, but I'm very impressed by the photos. Stunning!

I'm with Nikon...

but I know these heavy rains have

so much disadvantages.

Very kind of you to say such nice things about the photos. In fact, when I drove into Monaco around 11.45 the sun was shining and it was at that moment I should have snapped the high seas but I was running late and there wasn't a carpark space. Decided I'd take the pics on the way out of Monaco later in the day and by then it was heavily overcast and raining.

Lesson - better be late for an appointment than miss a better photo!

The wild sea looks beautiful on a plate like this, but I hope it is soon quiet again. Terrible what caused all the flooding ... flooded basements, evacuated people! The worst that two people have to give their lives! A real nightmare!

I hope your house is safe. The weather forecasts are not very positive.

Take care!

Warm wishes,

This is disturbing! Though, I must say that it is a very well taken picture.

It is sad when the obligations of everyday life interfere with stopping and taking photos.

Dear Jilly,

I hope everything is OK with you.
The last days I didn't read something about flood or stormdamage in Monaco in the Monaco Matin or Monaco Today by Ian Brodie.
Has Monaco escaped off this.
I saw films and pictures about Var and Genova area, but that was awful to see.

Have a nice evening and you know the sun is shining again in a few days.

Greeting, Robert

High seas indeed - so untypical of Monaco!

Dear Jilly I'm glad you are safe.
