Nice - à la Plage

Nice airport is just 4 km to the beach so we just walked from Terminal 2 to Promenade des Anglais. The website booking suggested hiring a transfer to the hotel in the double digits but I know not to book those after Toulouse! There is a bus that leaves Nice airport to the beach every 20 minutes for 6 euros but the walk from the airport is flat and safe as it is designated for cyclists and pedestrians. 
I was going to bring a blouse I bought from Rock n Romance but didn't fancy trying on any new clothes so decided on the Seamstress of Bloomsbury birds brooch that came with the package as a free gift!  The red suited a nautical look and the birds of flight was quite appropriate! It stayed on my jacket button-loop the whole time. This pin is surprisingly lovely for acrylic, they have a glossed heavy clay feel to them.  Handmade Poloneck Top
The first glance of the sea was a deep and bright royal blue, it was bedazzling!'The French Riviera (or Côte d'Azur) is the Mediterranean coast of southeastern France.' 'he name Côte d'Azur was given to the coast by the writer Stéphen Liégeard in his book, La Côte d’azur, published in December 1887. Liégeard was born in the French department of Côte-d'Or, and adapted that name by substituting the azure blue color of the Mediterranean for the gold of Côte-d'Or'
The sky was equally blue and bold! I have no idea what this building is but liked the colours:-
On a cloudy day the water shone silver. 
Promenade du Paillon, Miroir d'Eau (mirror of water)
Cute cupcake soaps. 
War memorial (1st and 2nd world wars).
Nice Port on a cloudy day.
