France ~ September 2017

Our fabulous group. Picture in Nice, France
I spent two fabulous weeks in France in September 2017. It was my reunion trip with The Blue Walk, and all 14 of the students were returning friends who'd traveled with me before.

We started Nice, France.
Nice is a wonderful city. And the light....
And the men in Nice wear the most colorful pants!

We visited the Matisse museum too.

One of my favorite places....

And then to Antibes, the market and the Absinthe bar.
