Hello Nice!

Our holiday plans included Christmas in Provence and New Years Eve in Nice.  On the day after Christmas, we boarded a train for a three hour ride from Marsille to Nice.  We rented an apartment for the week to help us feel even more like locals.  Nice Pebbles runs a very professional service and we were super-pleased with our apartment, l'Artiste.
We enjoyed colorful views of the town.
A gift basket of essentials including milk and wine awaited us.
One of my favorite things about the apartment was the pet store located just downstairs.  Everyday, we walked by adorable puppies and cats frolicking in the windows.
I wish I could have taken some of these guys home with me.  So cute!
We wandered into Place Massena which was still decked out for the holidays.
Seated bald statues lit up in neon colors dotted the square.
Lights danced off the pinkish buildings surrounding Place Massena.
Locals and tourists alike were out in force for the Christmas Market.
We ate off the beaten path at l'Authentic on Rue Biscarra.  Dinner service doesn't start until 7:30 pm in most places so we opted to sit outside with a glass of wine.  Our drinks came with a selection of snacks (cured meats, potato chips, and nuts) which tided us over until dinner time.
We decided to stay for supper at l'Authentic and moved inside.
We tried gnocchi in a mushroom cream sauce...
...and gorgeous steak and green beans.
An espresso pick-me-up crowned the meal.
Our time in Nice was off to a great start.
