During my temporary absence, here is another preprogrammed post from our marvelous weekend on the Côte d’Azur on the invitation of Jilly, this time from the little village Gorbio, situated on the top of a hill a few kilometers from the coastline (see map on my Menton-post), hardly visited by tourists, easily reachable from Jilly’s house by car or on feet, following the old donkey road, the choice we made (a bit climbing of course).
There was a baptising ceremony in the 17th century church. The little girl was more interested in picking up the rose petals than by the ceremony.
We had a most enjoyable lunch at “Beauséjour” on the small central place, starting with some sparkling aperitifs, Kir variations, with flavours of lavender, poppy, rose and violet.
You can find these photos in full and a slideshow on Ipernity.
To conclude my series of preprogrammed posts from Menton and surroundings, here is again the view from Jilly's terrace where we enjoyed a very nice lunch. Her garden is full of flowers of all sorts.
I take the opportunity to once more express my great thanks to Jilly for these wondeful days in her company, together with Nathalie, Richard and Stuart (Chuckeroon).
I hope to be back "in direct" on Wednesday and also to have the time to again make the tour of the blogs I have missed for a week or so.
