Pretty sights in Monaco....

Lovely street lantern
in Monaco-Ville

elegant statues dotted the paths
which winds around the scenic cliff-face
of the old ville

pretty "Candy Van"
on the ~ Quai de Albert~

Looking down onto
one of the newest additions to Monaco
~Le Port de Fontvieille~

this is a restricted port where all the
berths are reserved.
Excellent accomodation for luxury yachts
and I was told that each berth has it's
own mailing address.
I'm sure this all comes at a price!!

Hi Dianne,

I enjoyed seeing your photos of Monaco, looks like a beautiful place and one day I would love to go there for a visit.
Wouldn't it have been nice to see Princess Caroline there?

Happy Thursday

We were in Monaco a couple of months ago and missed that delightful candy van--guess we were looking at all the other eye candy instead!

Gorgeous photos of Monaco. I've heard the residents have fabulous government perks.

Living in Monaco would definitely be "La Bonne Vie."

I've never been to Monaco, but I know people living there and they are extremely happy and content with their life there!
thanks for the lovely images.

Hi Dianne,
Thank you for stopping by Fashion is my muse and leaving me a comment so I could find you.
Your photos take me back to one of my favourite places.
If you ever come to Toronto, the Bata Shoe Museum does not disappoint.
Best wishes for a happy weekend!
