To continue … from the market we walked to the
beach pebbles where the azure blue Med ripples gently onto the shore of grey pebbles. I’ve never seen a pebble beach before .. found it so odd seeing sunworshippers lazing on towels on stones, and others wading, with much difficulty – me included!! – to the waters edge where it dips quite steeply before you can swim. There can’t be a day that goes by when someone doesn’t slip :! ) Our South African beaches are white to golden shades of fine sand ..
Picking up pebbles to bring home ..
Sand poured onto pebbles for the volleyball court !
Umbrellas and beach chairs (where the flags are) for those who wish to pay for the luxury ..
… or on with the shoes ..
.. for playing on the
beach pebbles !!..
We walked as far as the Opera House – beautiful building !! (not that far at all .. huge stretch of coastline that goes right round to the airport) and then we turned back to make our way through the narrow streets of Vieux Nice
