Last Thursday, Riviera Radio (in Monaco) reported, “The town of Cannes has announced drastic measures ahead of the bad weather forecast for the region on Friday. Meteo France has warned of another ‘Mediterranean episode’ with strong winds and heavy rain expected. The city council in Cannes has, as a precaution, closed all underground car parks, public parks and suspended the work being carried on the Boulevard de la Croisette. School outings planned for Friday have been cancelled and a decision is to be made this morning as to whether schools will be closed. Meanwhile Meteo France has issued a weather warning with strong winds forecast for Le Loire, Haute Loire and Rhône region from 10pm this evening. The warning is in place until 2pm tomorrow.” And, boy, were they right! It started raining sometime during the night on Thursday and rained for 24 hours without stopping. ! It stopped early in the morning on Saturday, and the skies went a gorgeous blue. The sun was wonderful!!!! All of Nice went outside! So, did I. I got my money and a cane and walked out the door. I turned right. I had NO idea of where I was going or how long I would have energy.
I stayed out most of the day and had LOADS of energy. My legs were stronger and I felt alive!!! YES! I took lots of pictures. Used up all of my battery on my phone and had the wrong connecter for my charger. So, it all came to an abrupt halt around 3:00 p.m., and I went home. No problem. It was time. I had walked 3.7 miles, a lot of the time without the cane. I was soooo happy. At last, I was moving forward. So, I am going to post a lot of the photos that I took. I took about 50+ photos, so I am picking favorites. No commentary. Just moments in time. This is my own personal “MEDITERRANEAN EPISODE” in anticipation of the new decade!!!
What a WONDERFUL day! I will visit the Sea often after I move to Paris! It restores my soul! MERRY CHRISTMAS, Everyone! Let the new decade begin!!!

Hi, Kay, I agree. I will miss Nice but it is time for me to go. I am saying goodbye to things I love. I love the sea and will miss it a lot. But I am not happy here. I need a change. Cannot explain. But I know it is the best time for me to do it. Thanks for including the certificate in the newsletter . It is sad and exciting all at the same time. Endings and beginnings. Merry Christmas.
First, thank you for the unique – to me at least – Christmas greeting. Your days of bad weather sound like ours right now but worse – cold rain and wind off the Atlantic here-miserable day!
I enjoyed the photos and have a feeling you will miss the what appears to be the “serenity” of Nice. Others things will take the place though. Good your strength is better as you will need all of it in the next 30 days!
The salad in your pictures looked wonderful! Just looking at it made me hungry.
Take care and Merry Christmas.
