When it’s overcast and windy.

When it’s overcast and windy.

On Sunday a mistral started blowing across the Cote d’Azur so our intended beach day was now out of the question. So we decided to drive up into the mountains for a picnic instead. We found a sheltered spot on a field full of summer flowers, with a great view over the coast.

Katie had packed us a superb picnic which we washed down with a chilled bottle of Louis Roederer Champagne.

I ended up taking so many pictures of flowers – but I have spared you and only posted a few…

We stopped in at a little village called Gourdon on the way back for coffee and something sweet.

You can see the wind lashing through here!

Now that’s a sweet shop for you!

It’s so perfect, I almost felt like I was at Monte Casino in Joburg!

We decided on this cafe with a gorgeous view over the Riviera.


Katie and I both ordered a mini dessert platter. I almost platzed it was so good!

I promised not too many pictures of flowers, but these little posies were growing out of cracks all over.

Just too gorgeous for words!


  1. Such beautiful pictures – happy that my former flip flops got to go and have a picnic too!
