European Vacation – September 22-28/19 – Nice, France, Part 7 – The Port – Lottsa Yachts

Known as Lympia Port, after the name of a small spring in the marshy area where work on the port began in 1745. Today, it is the principal harbour in Nice. Only about 10 professional fishermen remain, so its main functions today seem to be to provide mooring for yachts and a ferry terminal to the island of Corsica, as this is the closest point to that island.

After leaving the I Love Nice sign, we wandered around the end of Colline du Chateau, where busy workers were trimming shrubs and doing a bit of high level maintenance. Then on past the War Memorial toward the harbour. The heat was oppressive this day, with little shade to hide in, until we got near the shopping areas.

At the bottom of and after Castle Hill, there are some beautiful old buildings idressed in Mediterranean colours.

J and I had this Schtick going, where we would shake hands as if I was making a sale deal with him. In this case, I sold him this yacht.
