IMG_1041I am busy with intensive language school while taking some time off work, so you will have to standby for a longer post later about the French Riviera. These photos were taken this Sunday in Villefranche-sur-Mer, ten minutes from Nice.

My blogging friend Chrissie from The Riviera Grapevine (now on a well deserved holiday in Australia) has told of the virtues of the bellet grape in this region during the past year…so perhaps I’ll switch from the ample rose to bellet within the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, the ‘chilly’ winter weather means wearing a sweater at night. Pas mal, as they say here. Not bad.

  1. What a view from your window! Hope we can catch up for a glass of Bellet vino soon 🙂

    1. Indeed Chrissie! Turns out a guitarist friend lives around the corner too, and the social cocktail is turning powerful already…Wonderful people here.

      Will depart early Feb, but be back soon enough for visits to Languedoc, Provence, and Liguria…so we’ll catch a glass soon enough 🙂 Love this place!

  2. Pas mal, indeed.

    Just got back from spending the holidays in LA.

    When we arrived in Boston it was six degrees. My daughter said: “The air hurts my face. Why do I live in a place where the air hurts my face?” 🙂

    1. Because then you truly appreciate spring and summer sunshine, and the varieties life offers …. 🙂
