|Tracy and Sydney walking in Antibes|
We went inland, away from the more familiar seaside towns, and found towns impossibly perched on top of rocky promontories, Gourdon is one example, a number of bastide towns, Turettes-Sur-Loup being our favourite.
The light and weather is unique in this part of the country and we enjoyed a respite from the dull, cold weather we normally experience in January. It was cold enough for snow on the surrounding ski slopes, but down at the sea shore it was very pleasant.

As well behaved dogs are allowed in restaurants in this part of France, we were able to visit a favourite vegetarian restaurant called Chez Helen in Antibes, it is a modest place, but the food is excellent as well as the service. We really got the most out of our time here as we were able to take the dog everywhere with us, and being so young, it gave him different experiences. We walked along the beach at Cagnes Sur Mer, we hiked the mountain trails and followed the coastal paths. We are looking forward to seeing Sydney again in the future for more exploring.
