Visiting Fontvielle, Monaco, Dreamin of France Meme .....





Please join this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us.


Other than going to the Grand Prix ,
we wanted to fit in as much
as possible , seeing the fabulous
areas in Monaco.
 
Linda and I walked
alot on our own, venturing to
new things each day , time permitting.
 
This day we went to
 
Port Fontvieille
Monaco



View Larger Map

Only fifty years ago Fontvieille was nothing
 more than a narrow stretch of sand where the rock plunged into the sea







 

We took a peek at the

The Museum of Stamps and Coins of Monaco


 
A
walk round the port ,,
the little boats you can see are the boats that
take the guests to the private yachts , there is no other way!!
 
 




 
 
 
This is the other side to the sundial and it says
Cadran Solaire De Fontvielle ,,
 
I cannot find a link for it .. I will keep looking.
 
 
 
 

They have lots of statues around this area , so more to come!!

    1. Hi Leslie,, it was fabulous, and so much to see. Linda and I would like to go back , not for the GP though, in normal months ,, out of season even, , and adventure further afield, love it, and being so close to Italy , we could do both .. NOW there is an idea., :-)

  3. Hi Anne, thanks for returning the visit. I found your blog through someone else's - it was on their blogroll. Glad I did now.

    Sure, please feel free to share my post about the dreadful trip to Legoland on your Facebook page.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Hi Anne,
    I LOVED this :). I have never been so South as this( I won't say the farthest South I have been because it is no contest!).
    Those are wonderful walks under the sun.
    Thank you for sharing and take care.
