Our time in the Mediterranean has seemed much too short, but all good things must come to an end. Also, our standard visitors Schengen Visa only gives us 90 days in the EU before we have to leave. That's just not enough time, with so much to see. We will be able to stay in the area by visiting non-Schengen places, like Gibraltar and Morocco. We will also visit the friendly immigration people in Barcelona to see if we can get the ever-elusive Schengen Visa extension. Wish us luck!
We last left off the blog at the start of the French Riviera, Menton. That city was beautiful, and the day trip to Monaco was very interesting, but we wanted to see Nice. We did a quick hop of only a couple of hours in the boat and moored in downtown Nice, next to all of the super yachts.
Nice is an amazingly beautiful city, full of vibrant culture. The traditional Mediterranean wooden boats were everywhere and added to the charm of the place.
The public places were fantastic, and the girls spent hours in the spray park which was immense. It had over 100 fountains for running through in order to stay cool during the hot summer days.
