St Paul-de-Vence, Provence/Côte d’Azur # 2

Our walk-about St Paul-de-Vence continues – will you join me?

Every city, town and village has a cemetary … artist Marc Chagall is buried here.  He is well-known for his paintings, drawings, sculpture, stained glass and mosaics.  The Musée Chagall is located in Nice

Although he was not Jewish, the Jewish custom of placing a stone on his grave prevails ..

Hubby and I strolled along the road following the ramparts – not all around the village, unfortunately, as was the usual case, the bus awaited for our next instalment of our day’s adventure 🙂

Beautiful pink oleanders .. highly poisonous, but beautiful nonetheless !

Dogs aplenty in France .. he’s a cutie, this one, looks like a toy ..

A dinky door fit for a hobbit !!!

We went into a quaint liqueur shop – after several tastings of delicious local liqueurs, purchased a Crème de Figue – Fig Liqueur.   We had different shaped empty bottles to choose from, in which the shopkeeper filled the bottle of our choice and sealed it

.. and attached a handwritten label .. the personal touch !

Our chariot bus awaited … next stop on Day 4 .. Perfumerie Fragonard and a drive up the Corniches between Nice and Monaco to dinner at La Bergerie d’Eze then back to Nice to sleep !

    Love the idea of having your choice of liquer bottled with a personal label. That’s really nice! I never knew until I had Stacey (24 years ago) that Oleanders were poisonous – I had one in my garden which I was to take out. Those ones are particularly beautiful!

  2. I just can’t get over how beautiful this place is. I would love to have been able to join you on this trip.

    The Xhosa people alos put a stone on a grave as a show of respect.

    Having your own bottle of liqueur with the hand written note must be something special
