South of France in Winter

It was a bit cold in Seurre so we decided to spend a couple of weeks down south.  I first thought it would be nice to take the bike the weather looked pretty good, but as we where ready to go surprise surprise snow started falling, we are at the end of December in France after all. So I had to take the car or go by myself. I was not ready for that…not today….

Ready to go on the bike? no thank you no today

It looks a bit miserable outside , Ready to go on the bike? no thank you, not today. So we take the car direction the sun…

Time to go to Nice for some nice weather. Suzanne running "sur la promenade des Anglais "

As we arrived in Nice the temperature was 14 degrees, a bit warmer than Seurre.. Suzanne took the opportunity to run “sur la promenade des Anglais “
