This is me finally blogging some of my favourite days ever - a year later.  These South of France photos simply cannot waste away on my computer any longer.  I had to share them with you because they're just so delicious I want to jump back into these moments and never come back!

As you might remember, we were staying in Antibes, which is just past Cannes and right before Nice via train.  The perfect distance to venture out on a day trip!  We walked everywhere, soaking in the sights and sounds of the popular city.  I loved the Mediterranean influence in a lot of the architecture, as well as the dreamy pastels and pops of flora.  There are moments of perfect symmetry and then beautifully stacked organized chaos.  We wandered Old Town and hit the usual touristy sights like the Promenade des Anglais and enjoyed breathtaking views from the Bellinda Tower at La Colline du Chateau.  We had a break for coffee and then another break later on for wine and appies.  Because you know, living the dream life is exhausting, right?  We did a bit of shopping and lots of people watching.  We ate dinner at a mediocre touristy restaurant because we were having one of those indecisive moments AND being a vegetarian in a place like France is a real nightmare.  It was still a great meal, and as we were paying our bill I looked up and saw that the sky was positively on fire.  The sunset was something I cannot even describe to you.  Buzzing from our wine, we ran as fast as we could back to the Bellinda Tower, laughing and stumbling along the way.  We managed to climb all those steps once again to the top and captured the sunset over Nice, as night fell over the city.
