Nice and Eze ... not Nice and Easy as some smart mouths called it!

Off to Nice and Eze... 

Nice was fascinating

 Loved the town square

Russian Orthodox Church built by Nicholas II


Leopold II's Home

Awesome trip with my best friend!
and she took me to Eze too!!!

Eze is a medieval village high on a rocky outcrop above the harbor dating back to before the time of Christ.

Monaco and Monte Carlo

OK, the French Riviera is cool... we can't afford to live there, but it is cool!

We went ashore early in the morning. 

First miracle of the day, Judy is awake!

We climbed a million stairs.  Judy
was pretty happy to find this along the way!

Thanks to Israel and all the walking we did there
we did not need the Defibrillator!

The Leaning Tower of Pisa

I didn't do it!  It leans, but I am not responsible!!!
If you had told us years ago that one day we would stand in this place, I would have told you "not likely!"  But once again God shows Himself faithful in that He does indeed give to us the "desires of our hearts"  
Pisa and its leaning tower are awesome!

On the way to Pisa

Somebody is HAPPY!

and ... "Gob Smacked!"


and... the Baptistry leans too!

Oh YEAH, Judy took me with her!

Inside the Pisa Church

The Pendulum Chandelier

and our day ends with yet another Towel Critter...
