Monaco and Nice

We docked just at breakfast in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Sunrise on the Mediterranean

Henri Matisse lived in this building, and parts of it show up in his paintings.

Flowers, cacti, palm trees… So different from home. ;)

Baie des Anges, named for the sharks that used to frequent these waters, when there were more fish here. An ecological statement from our tour guide that the waters here have been so overfished that it doesn’t have a fishery anymore.

At the Matisse museum, an example of the stained glass he did as a part of his designed chapel for the Dominicans in Vence, which he called his masterpiece.

And leaving Monaco after a short 8-9 hours docked.
