Sunday and after a most delicious lunch at L’Ecole des Filles, a lovely rustic restaurant in Bar sur Loup where we’d eaten before, we spontaneously decided to drive to Monaco to the winter fair.
|Skaters in Monaco|
Monaco was all lit up and feeling very festive and so we walked among the stalls selling handmade gifts, Nutella waffles and crepes, mulled wine and little knitted SpongeBob finger puppets. How could one resist?
|A very big Pinochio|
We watched the ice skaters on the rink and the chilly passengers on the ferris wheel.
|The Casino, Monte Carlo|
And then we drove through Monte Carlo past the casino and the Hotel de Paris with beautiful frosted Christmas trees in front before heading back towards Nice and the Cote d’Azur.

Not a bad way to spend a spontaneous afternoon.
