Have you ever noticed that the best weekends are those when you have no plans, and you can say yes to everything and it turns out to be amazing?!?
That was this weekend for us..we had zero plans going into this weekend (which NEVER happens)!
Friday night we had a lazy night watched “Sons of Anarchy” via streaming website. It was a great way to end the week, doing absolutely nothing!
Saturday we woke up to a bright sunny day, so we took the doggies for a walk around the Monaco harbor and stopped for a coffee and to enjoy the sunshine. When we got home, I had a message inviting us to lunch in Menton. We jumped on the motorcycle and spent a gorgeous afternoon hanging out. We ate at Il Etait une Fois…., which was right on the promenade in Menton (884 to be exact). You could enjoy the sun, the sea and people watching. The waitress recommended the duck, which I happily took her recommendation! David ate the black risotto with a red fish on top. Our friends got the salmon and the duck as well. Everything was really nice, and the service was great as well! After we shared a tiramisu, which was not my favorite…but it was sweet and tasty all the same.
We wanted to walk off our lunch, so we took a stroll into old town of Menton. Which is really quite beautiful. We walked up the hill towards the two churches. I’m sure there is loads of history around these churches, and there was tour walking by….but we didn’t bother to listen. We went into each church to admire the beauty and to say a prayer for our lost baby and for the baby that we will hopefully be conceiving this month. After that we walked around the shopping area and made our way home. We enjoyed a nice lazy night at home!!
Sunday we were good and went to church. We met up with our friends there who invited us to go into Nice for lunch that afternoon. We went to The Snug, English Pub in Nice and ate a delicious Sunday Roast! We went home a few hours later nice and full and happy from a few beers.
All in all, a great weekend that makes us sad to leave. But it’s becoming bittersweet, because we are excited to move on from everything here in Monaco and get back to our family and friends in Miami. However, we will miss all of our new friends and we will miss the beautiful Cote d’Azur! At least we still have nearly 2 months to enjoy life here in Monaco!
