Foto Friday… Colors of Vieux Nice

Happy Friday dear readers.  We’ve got a day off today in remembrance of Armistice Day, and it just so happens to be the birthday of one near & dear husband, so we’re off to a long-anticipated lunch at Le Caribou restaurant in Marseille.

Let’s just say I was cautioned not to eat for a day or two  (très impossible, of course) in preparation for our Le Caribou outing.  Rumor has it their “buffet-style” menu promises to leave us elbow-deep in fish platters & white wine.  It’s shaping up to be a pretty fantastique day indeed.

After recovering from about 2 solid weeks of rainstorms, the only thing we’re missing today is a spat of Southern sunshine.

I’m hoping a few of these colorful photos from Vieux Nice will add a bit of brightness to our day & yours.  What a gorgeous area, and what a vibrant city.  I’ll be reporting back soon from another “Vieux” part of an equally interesting city – the Vieux Port of Marseille.  More photos and “fish tales” to come…

Bon weekend a tous!
