Baie Des Anges



On Sunday morning I drove along the Bord de Mer, literally sea side, the road that hugs the coast . I started in Nice and ended up on the stretch that runs between Villeneuve Loubet and Antibes. It was a clear, cold day and I especially wanted to catch this view, the view across the Baie des Anges to the snow capped mountains where the sea stations are located .
The built up area in the background is Cagnes sur Mer, a little west of Nice which is further to the right. You can easily see the apartment blocs of the Marina Baie des Anges complex there on the left; they warrant a post of their own but if you'd like to see a photo of them taken from the air go check out this site.

Oh my gosh, that apartment complex is humongous! Is it trying to compete with the mountains?

This is a fantastic view, Angela! The snow-capped mountains are gorgeous. Thank you for taking that drive to show us this.

Gorgeous scenerey. The apartment building is interesting to view actually, quite stunning. It is complimentary to it's surroundings, much better than a big box.

That is a mighty impressive view, ma'am. Yes indeedy, I think it deserves some sort of "vista" award. I haven't figured out what that is yet because my brain is temporarily frozen. In any case, this is where the word "awesome" is used appropriately.

What a lovely run out taking in Antibes. Again another of my favourite places. This blue is just too much a visual feast for the eyes. Gorgeous.
