The Beach.

Anyone visiting Nice primarily for a beach holiday would be a little disappointed, I'd say: the beach is a relatively narrow, crowded strip of pebbles between a busy road and the sea. Having said that the Mediterranean is beautiful, the sun usually warm and the ice cream cold...
Looking across from the Quai Rauba Capeu towards the Quai des Etats-Unis; the weather's still hot during the daytime though the evenings are cooler. Last year Autumn lasted forever let's hope it's the same this year.

Would love to see your pebble beach up close. Very interesting, compared to our beaches. That's what I love about this DPBlog1

Hello !

Cela donne envie de se baigner, surtout qu'ici dans l'Ouest, le temps ne l'a pas trop permis...

It's only time I wear flip flops. If I could change anything it would be sand, not pebbles. Still I'd rather take the pebbles there than anything here.
