The alarm went off at 8:45am. Our room was freezing so it was very hard to get up, but we eventually made our way out of bed! The shower was tiny and the water only turned on for 30 seconds! We took half of our showers cold with no water! After we manage to pack our bags in the small space we had, we walked down the street to find a place to eat. We only had about 20minutes to eat because we wanted to catch a train at 12:30pm and needed to buy tickets at ...
... from the top of the ship. Not a great sightseeing day. The coastline is just fabulous though what we can see of it. Everything you think it's supposed to be when you hear of the French Rivera.

There are about 6 bus loads doing the same tour as us and about 12 ...
... the beach, but now they are stone beaches instead of sand. Love how everyone gets out amongst it, all shapes, sizes and ages, and baked to a tan that will shrivel like a sultana no doubt! Loads of dogs on the beach lazing with their owners, or walking the streets and cafes. Small to medium dogs mainly. We turn inland now, heading up into the alps to find Peille. OMG...glad we hadn't been doing this at midnight the previous night! Glorious views quickly ...
