Flag of France  , Provence,
Tuesday, November 2, 2010

The night before we came to the yet again devastating news that we had expired our gas bottle. We tried many service stations and campgrounds all the way through Monte Carlo and Nice and then finally up into Vence. Everyone seemed happy to point us into the direction of a possible gas place, but every time we were disappointed. Gas day has to be the worst day.

In the end we simply bought a whole new larger bottle that we can exchange in France, seeing we have to come back though again later in the year.

Satisfied, we drove on to Antibes, not especially interested in going back to the insanity of Monte Carlo and Nice. Antibes is a great little coastal town where we were able to park safely off the marina and walk in. There were fascinating antique markets set up inside the walls and we also had fun sticking our noses into the food and spice market in the old town. By now we had thrilling sunny weather, so we were able to pack a picnic and enjoy the foreshore and the beaches, looking out at the fortress and the snow covered Alps.

Antibes is also well known as a place where Pablo Picasso did a great deal of work. We tried to see the gallery but it was closed. Apparently the town had given him a castle to recluse himself in after the trauma of the war.
