|Le Bord du Mer|
Last Sunday, they closed down the main road through here for recreation. Everyone could go for walk, ride or play games. There was a jumping castle, pony rides, a kids gym, and battery powered racing cars for kids. No stink, and loads of space. How nice would it be if it was permanent.
|Nearly at the top, 800m|
For Ollie, it was red dots on their faces. Every kid in the whole school had the measles! I only saw Ollie and his dotted face. Marie explained he's got the measles. Gee I'm a sucker.
|The boys sort it out|
School lunch is in the canteen
We were talking about the kinds of food they get at the school canteen: the different kinds of entree, cooked main and desert.
So I told Ollie how we always had sandwiches for lunch at school. "They served you sandwiches at the canteen??" he said in horror. Having a sandwich for lunch is unthinkable, only if you really don't have time to eat properly eg when you want to go for a bike ride, hiking etc for a couple of hours.
|St. Jeannet and the start of the walk to the Baou.|
Bushwalk to the Baou
The Baou of St Jeannet is the towering chunk of rock that sits looking over the Var river near Nice here. The village is about 300m altitude, then you walk up to 800m height. Not bad for the littlies. The view around is great. It's amazing that it's so close to town.
