Almost Nice: Antibes

Thank you for your support and encouragement. I had wondered about posting some of my other photos and, yes, I have so many of them...The bulk of them were taken in this area so I'll just call this series Almost Nice!
Antibes is so far my favourite Riviera town. It has atmosphere, an old town, a real market, museums and the sea and along with the colour pink the sea is definitely up there on my personal list of favourite things.
I took this from the walk that skirts the old town. The light on the water caught my eye first but then I noticed the Hobie cats in the distance and then, and this makes me smile, the silhouette of the palms on the sky line.

Shimmering waters...

I liked Antibes and Menton the best on the Riviera (to live). What is your opinion on Cannes?

un superbe endroit, ta photo donne envie de venir se promener sur antibes. A Antibes, je suis venu (il y a bien longtemps) pour le festival de jazz (vers 1986 si je me rappelle bien) voir Jacques Higelin jouait avec Didier Lockwood.

So beautiful - from your description I can just imagine this sweet town. I hope you are feeling better. I've been having bad allergies too this season and sometimes I feel like a truck hit me!

Whoops. I posted on your blog about two hours ago and it seems not to have 'gone.' I swear it's because it knows we are so close...

Love this photograph, Angela - and Antibes. Never knew they were called Hobie Cats. Thanks for that information.

Beautiful pic. Jilly x
