March 24

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

Another lazy Sunday morning. Back still out of sorts, but getting better. A bit rainy but not enough to stop us having a brisk walk along the promenade mid afternoon. Resisted the temptation for une glace on the way back, as well as a large glass of something at Ponchettes!
H whipped up a tasty curry for dinner. Work looms for the morning, so it was off to bed at sensible- o’clock…

So, we had decided to hire a car so that we actually got out of the Old Town. Up the earliest we had been all week to pick it up just off Place Masséna. A Toyota Aygo (ay-go-fk-yourself)
Hmmm. Actually was ok for what it was. It got us up to Eze perfectly well. Mooched around the tropical gardens in the glorious sunshine. Most relaxing. Headed to La Turbie for some lunch and to look at the views. The trophée d’August was quite something!

After dropping the car off, and having some dinner it was off to the Ellington hotel to see Marj and Bev.

Headed off to Gatwick with our pile of luggage… Haven’t quite got the hang of travelling light! Quick stop in the lounge for a bite to eat and, shockingly, the flight was on time!
Arrived at the flat while it was still light-ish which was novel. Was worth the effort to do a proper clean before we left last time – it was all lovely and fresh. Unpacked the important stuff and headed to our fave restaurant – Côte Marais for a fab meal. A perfect start to the trip 🙂
