I am still working on the 2007 trip to France, even though Paris is done and printed, there are still many places and many pictures to scrap.
The French Riviera was a spectacular place. It would be easy to spend time in Nice, with it's beautiful harbor area, long stretch of sandy beach and promenade, harbor-front hotels, and beautiful old town. When we were there they were tearing up the streets to put in a tram of some sort, so the downtown was a construction nightmare, but down by the water, it was lovely.
I made this page for the 'Paint Your Story' challenge by Studio 68 at Oscraps. This was taken on a boat trip, LA PROMENADE CÔTIÈRE. I was able to find a little map of exactly what this little 'une heure' tour entailed.
It was a beautiful day for a boat trip, the scenery was magnificent, the company precious.
And that's the story, embellished with lots of brushes and stamps to hopefully give the feel of lightness, airiness, happiness.
If Nice was beautiful, Eze (pronounced as if rhyming with pez, not easy, but hey, I like a play on words) was spectacular. More of a fantasyland than a place to live, this village perched on the top of a hill was truly a dreamland of blue sky, gorgeous views, old stone and blooming flowers.
A highlight, if one could find a highlight in a place that is all highlights, was the beautiful sculpture garden with its many stone statues of goddesses, each with a name and a message.
I am so glad I captured all of this in a detailed journal, even written en français.
