of Notre-Dame de Nice
The first thing I did was head down to The Mediterranean Sea after all that was the main reason I came here to be by the sea again. I looked in the Basilica of Notre Dame it was okay nothing special looked in shops along the way. It was pretty warm out, well compared to London but it was hazy but I was so happy to see the sea again. I walked along the The Promenade des Anglais for awhile taking in the scenery.

I then headed off to Place Massena the square where the Christmas market was and there was a stunning recreation of Nice’s former Casino Pier, on the Promenade du Paillon, I stood forever as it would change first from water shooting up into the sky from various sprouts and then a thick mist would come in and it looked like you were in the clouds.

I walked around and then tried socca which is a rosemary-scented chickpea flour crêpe it was cut into small squares it was good and then after awhile a chocolate crepê yum yum, this was my dinner. Now that it was dark I walked back over to the the found which looked even better in the evening with the lights on. All and all it was a good day in Nice.
