The Promenade des Anglais was hosting an expo with various stands featuring boating, artisanal products, and one selling handbags made out of sailboat cloth. Although the summer temperature was high, locals and tourists alike strolled and browsed the stands under the heat of the midday sun.
What else to do on an extremely hot summer day in Nice but eat, drink, and be merry! Heading for a seaside restaurant that provided shade and a nice sea view and breeze, we chose Beau Rivage, known for its iconically Nice blue chair artistic entrance.
The rosé wine was refreshing and the lunch was delicious – a leisurely good time with friends, and yes, were very merry!
