Day 386 – Friday 29th March 2019
A beautiful sunny day; to Antibes for a picnic lunch.
Since last year they’ve removed all the raised planters that people could sit on to eat their picnics from the Place Nationale; I don’t think they’ll be happy until the entire square is filled with restaurant tables. Luckily they haven’t yet found a way to engineer away the steps at the foot of the column so we ate have our picnic in the sun there.
Then we had a ride out to the Plage de la Garoupe on the Cap d’Antibes.
Most of the Plage de la Garoupe is private belonging to two ridiculously expensive restaurants but there is a small public section of beach near to the cheaper restaurant. This is the Cap d’Antibes so cheap is a relative term, omelette, chips and a drink will still cost you north of €20 each.
On the way back we stopped to look at the view of Antibes from La Salis. Claude Monet did a series of paintings of the view of Antibes from the Cap.
Today was supposed to be the UK’s last day in the EU but Theresa May has completely cocked things up.
Day 387 – Saturday 30th March 2019
Lovely sunny day. I went back to Cap d’Antibes on Zippy for a good explore. Managed to find a route to the Phare
Found a few roads that lead down to the coast and will give those a try later in the week.
Day 388 – Sunday 31th March 2019
Glorious sunny day; into Antibes for lunch at Les Pimms.
There were some protesting vegans outside the restaurant. I didn’t know there were any in France! I went over for a chat and they told me off for eating cheese!
After lunch we had a ride to the phare on Cap d’Antibes so Julie could enjoy the view.
Day 389 – Monday 1st April 2019
A milky sky this morning. Julie has a bit of a sore throat so I am going to walk the Sentier du Littoral on the Cap d’Antibes starting and finishing at Plage de la Garoupe.
All in all a great little walk with plenty of places to stop and have a quiet lunch.
Day 390 – Tuesday 2nd April 2019
Another milky start to the day. Spent the day eating, drinking and playing cards with Eirin 😀
Day 391 – Wednesday 3rd April 2019
Day 392 – Thursday 4th April 2019
Cold start to the day. It absolutely bucketed it down last night. Went for a ride on Zippy this afternoon.
