The View

Finally, I got my mitts on Bill's photos. Mind, I already had 160 pictures of the view over the Baie des Anges from Ben's balcony. At the risk of stating the obvious, it does look different in daytime than at night, in sunshine or with cloud. Features we enjoyed other than the sea and sky were the moon - in differing colours and sizes, the ferry to Corsica and some tall ships with the stately masts, airplanes taking off and landing at the airport directly across the bay, the cliffs lit up at night, a fireworks display on the Promenade des Anglais and a couple of rather special houses in the area. So, bear with me while I do this photo-dump. We were both clearly obsessed with this view, but I noticed even Marie often stopped what she was doing to go watch the sunset...

I loved the windows and the balconies of this very elegant house -
actually, it's probably several flats. Still gorgeous.

The ferry to Corsica left from the port, just at the bottom of the street...
well, about a mile away.

The front of this apartment building reminded me of the prow of a ship.

Good. Now that's done I can talk about something else...later.

With such beautiful views, Ben and Marie must struggle to leave home and be glad to return. No wonder you took so many photographs!
