France - Day 10 & Day 11

Yesterday we went to Tourrettes. It is a small hill town right next to Fayence-

a bit of a traffic jam


Today we drove down the coast -


To Monaco -


All the fancy stores-

and casinos in the distance

This is what we came to see though - my oldest child's choice.
The F1 Tunnel for the Monte Carlo Grand Prix (I think that is what it is called), we had to walk it too (along with lots of other people), hoping to see super cars (we did see a bunch on the drive to Monte Carlo).
The same son is also the one who bought shoes on the Champs Elysees in Paris!

the Mediterranean Sea was so clear


It was a very hot, wonderful, day. Only about 1½ hours away from the villa.

More time has been spent lounging too -


Just one full day left in Provence!
A bientot!

What spectacular scenery. I have always heard about Monaco, but it was fun to actually SEE it. The sea is so clear and beautiful - exactly as I would have imagined.
