On Sunday a mistral started blowing across the Cote d'Azur so our intended beach day was now out of the question. So we decided to drive up into the mountains for a picnic instead. We found a sheltered spot on a field full of summer flowers, with a great view over the coast.
|Katie had packed us a superb picnic which we washed down with a chilled bottle of Louis Roederer Champagne.|
|I ended up taking so many pictures of flowers - but I have spared you and only posted a few...|
|We stopped in at a little village called Gourdon on the way back for coffee and something sweet. |
You can see the wind lashing through here!
|Now that's a sweet shop for you!|
|It's so perfect, I almost felt like I was at Monte Casino in Joburg!|
|We decided on this cafe with a gorgeous view over the Riviera.|
|Katie and I both ordered a mini dessert platter. I almost platzed it was so good!|
|I promised not too many pictures of flowers, but these little posies were growing out of cracks all over. |
Just too gorgeous for words!
