Nice, France, 25 May - 2 June 2006: Baie des Anges

Sunset, Baie des Anges, NiceViewed from a vantage point at the foot of the Chateau Hill that fringes the eastern edge of Vieux Ville Nice, on a plaza triumphantly named Place du 8 Mai 1945, the setting sun blazes the cloudy sky in fiery pink, red, yellow and orange, across the Baie des Anges.

Baie des Anges, East: Chateau Hill & Place du 8 Mai 1945Mediterranean SeaMediterranean SeaBaie des Anges, West: Promenade des AnglaisThe 8-km long Baie des Anges stretches from the foot of the Chateau Hill on the east, running past Vieuxville and the Promenade des Anglais, to Nice Airport on the west. In the evenings at high tide, the Mediterranean Sea bubbles alive. Waves gnash and thrash as they pound the shingled dark pebble beach head: Neptune's plaintive cry to the heavens.

Evening Sky, Nice
The sky bursts into brilliant opalescent hues as Apollo strains his last at day's labour's end.

These are the 30 countries that I have ever set foot on. Airport stopovers don't count!
