Uncategorized Menton II July 16, 2014 admin Leave a comment We started the day with a rigorous climbing adventure. Above is the start of the climb. Here is the city where we started the climb. It dates back to Roman times. A view of the first bridge we crossed (seen in the first photo). A view of the second bridge we crossed. We climbed several hundred feet but didn’t quite finish the climb. Alex got a blister on his hand that popped so we decided to stop which was a very good decision. He was a real trooper throughout the climb and up until the blister he was ahead of me! Alex and I at the end of the climb. I worked up just a bit of a sweat! Here is Marlene who motored up the mountain, she’s in amazingly good shape yet had no problem waiting for Alex and me as we plodded along behind her. Alex and I on our way to a café for a much needed drink. After the climb we went to chez Rizo for lunch and a bit of rest. Then we went on a long walk in Menton and followed it up with a refreshing swim in the Mediterranean. A wonderful dinner of Paella with the eldest daughter of M. Rizo, Audette and her husband Bernard, their son Jonathon and of course Marlene, M. Rizo and Alex. A great way to end a perfect day.
