Rained out at Villefranche sur Mer

Yesterday, the annual Naval Battle of the Flowers was due to take place in Villefranche-sur-Mer, just along the coast from Monaco.   I went along with my friend Sylvie but it rained and it rained and eventually it was postponed.  It will now take place tomorrow.  Here you see some of the boats, waiting to be filled with floats made of flowers  - which stand, happily undercover, on the edge of the port.

Sylvie and I got rather wet but ended up having a great lunch and drowning our sorrows.  We'll go back on Wednesday.

Lovely place, Villefranche. I also love the walk from Villefranche to Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu. Can't imagine Tina Turner sold her house there ;-)
