Nice et Cannes

Happy Easter everybody! I know that today is Good Friday and Easter is on Sunday, but I won’t post again before that so I’m saying happy Easter today.

A few weeks ago I went on a beautiful school trip to the French Riviera and Monaco. The first stop was Cannes, where we had lunch and an hour or two on the beach, then we went to Nice, which is where we stayed the night. It was gorgeous. The water is so clear and blue (I know, I know, it’s the Côte d’Azur, what did I expect, but it’s really super blue), and the food was awesome, and the beaches were full of all these beautiful smooth stones and I loved it.

My roommate for the weekend, Lauren, looking beautiful.

And I know these photos are all super bright. It was so sunny I had a lot of trouble getting my camera adjusted.

I don’t know why I was so obsessed with this sign thing but I took about thirty pictures of it. It’s cool looking, for sure, but I’m not sure if it’s thirty-pictures-of-the-exact-same-thing cool.

Baby's Breath

Baby’s Breath

From the flower market in Nice! One of my favorite things in France. The whole thing reminded me of that first scene in the film version of My Fair Lady with Audrey Hepburn, so the pictures from France that aren’t of that sign are of flowers.

I read a book recently where a character said baby’s breath was ugly. I almost died. Baby’s breath is beautiful.

From a seafood restaurant. They were displaying how fresh all their food was by having it out in front of the restaurant so you could come up and see.

Thanks for reading! I’ll be back Monday with a short little post on the medieval town of Eze in France. Have a nice weekend!

Viareggio Sunset

Last Viareggio post! Which means . . . I actually have to edit my France pictures. Or photograph my paintings. In any case, do some actual work. :(

Anyway, hope you enjoy these!

Little Girl on the Beach

Kids are cute. Especially kids who are having THE BEST TIME EVER. And the best thing about kids is that THE BEST TIME EVER comes along pretty often for them. Here’s a kid having THE BEST TIME EVER for your enjoyment.

And I’m not captioning these because I’m literally just too lazy. Call them one through seven.

Jenn on the Beach

More pics of Viareggio! I’m almost done, I swear. I might post again today to get through these quickly. These are my pictures of Jenn on the beach. She and I really haven’t been friends that long, so hopefully she won’t be too creeped out by this. I could theoretically ask her permission to post this first, but I’m not gonna. :D!

More Viareggio Beach Pictures

 

As I’m sure you noticed, we had a real good time in Viareggio. Today I just have pictures of how gorgeous the beach is (very).

The dramatic color change in the sky here is due to the several hour hiatus that Jenn and I took to find lunch. We didn’t find any open restaurants, strangely, but ended up just wandering for a bit and eventually had gelato instead. Lunch, gelato, same thing, right? Anyway, the sun is quite a bit lower in these last few pictures.DSC_0132 DSC_0133Hope y’all enjoyed this, and I’ll be back with more soon. I’m spending this weekend in Prague (:D!!!) so you might not hear from me until Monday. Ciao ciao!

 

A Walk on the Beach in Viareggio

More Viareggio pictures! These are pretty much all just pictures of people hanging out on the beach. I don’t really have much to say about them so I’ll just let you look. :)
