Goodbye Annecy Hello Nice

We're on the bus travelling to Nice today. It's misty and wet as we leave Annecy but should clear up and warm up as we travel further south. 
Situated at the base of huge snow capped mountains Annecy is the most beautiful place we have seen so far and that includes Bath and Switzerland.
 When standing looking over the lake Judles said this is probably what heaven looks like. 
Walk along pretty canals and lake with water that is so clear you can see the bottom. The lake water from a distance looking a beautiful unusual Jade colour.  Beautiful old buildings, houses with flower pots full of bright geraniums and iron work balconies, rambling cobblestone lane ways, baskets of bright flowers everywhere, bridges with iron work and baskets of flowers,  canals with boats, centuries old churches. Many postcard snaps taken here. Our camera batteries completely flattened. 
Dinner for Jude and I eaten el fresco with purchases made from local vendors at very little cost,  found by wandering through the laneways. Dessert - fresh waffle with gelato and cream. 
Tonight we dine near THE casino in Monaco and can go there afterward. Best steam out the wrinkles on the good clothes. 
Write to you from Nice. 
Judee one and Judee one one
Xx
