Sunday Mornings 1


So what does Sunday morning mean to you? Me, I slop around in night clothes, email the family, read a newspaper, have a leisurely breakfast and eventually work up enough energy to walk the dogs. This morning, however, I actually got up, dressed and headed into town to see how the average Nicois spends his down time and was stunned to discover half the city out and about and engaged in all sorts of physical activities: jogging, walking, cycling and sailing. It was so inspirational I just had to find a bench to sit on while I recorded it all...Anyway I'll show what I saw over the next few days.
This photo came with a bonus: you can just catch sight of the airport runway sticking out into the sea behind the yacht. It's almost touching down in the water that makes landing in Nice such a special start to a visit here.

Beautiful shot Angela. I can see why folks are out and about early.

The sailboat on the placid water gives a feeling of peace and serenity. Lovely!

That blue is gorgeous! You make an airplane landing sound almost pleasurable!

I'm glad Nice is up and running again too. Looking forward to the rest of your photos!

And if you haven't voted for the January theme yet, please do so! The poll is in the January Theme Day Poll forum topic.

Hilda thanks for the reminder.

That sea, that colour. This would be ideal for my sunday, instead of the cold wet one we just had.

A perfect day to sail. That is what Sunday is about, relaxing and enjoying the day.
