I am home from my whirlwind trip to the French Riviera, Provence and Paris. We had a wonderful time driving around the countryside, eating delicious food and seeing gorgeous scenery along the way.

Above, and below, are a few pictures from Nice. The water was a spectacular aquamarine hue and the sky was deep azure.

This photograph of Old Nice shows the true, (un-retouched) color of the sky:

One night we went to a restaurant called "Le Château de la Chèvre d'Or" (The Golden Goat) in Eze.

It was situated on the side of a cliff (corniche) and offered a spectacular view of the Mediterranean Sea and the French Riviera:
