Richard's Menton - Life on the Côte d'Azur


Taken on Menton's rue Piétonne (pedestrian street) by Richard.

One of the many joys of life in Menton is sitting outside a bar watching the world go by...

  6. Menton has been on my travel list for the past 3 years (one year we booked but had to cancel for family reasons). I enjoy your blog daily as I know that I will love one day visiting the chin of France.

  8. Shades of Brigitte Bardot! This is a fabulous shot, Richard. Kudos! And as Nathalie said, this is what comes to mind with the word "Riviera."

  11. She reminds me an other "special case" I watch every summer who starts dancing in the street at night when she finds a street musician. Have you ever seen her Jilly. She wears a wide brimmed hat.
