(Morning view from kitchen window)(Me leaning out of the kitchen window--what I wouldn't give for this window, this view in MY kitchen!)
(The guest house--where Russ and I stayed)
(The walk from the guest house down to the pool--can you smell the roses and rosemary?)
(View of St. Paul de Vence from the villa.)
(View from my pool chair!)(Thomas with a Kronenberg.)
We spent the early afternoon by the pool and planned to visit Lotta's mother and step-father at their apartment in Antibes. They lived in Sweden until April when they retired and bought this place close to the ocean in Antibes.

We enjoyed our visit (and Margaret's hospitality) and walked to the old town area of Antibes. Our plan was to just walk around until we found somewhere we wanted to eat. Hans (Margaret's husband) gave us a mini history lesson along the way. The part that resonated with me was that this town is 1500 years old.
(Security, paparazzi, and the guy in white is the owner of the restaurant.)
Many black cars came and went, but no familiar faces. Then, out popped Quintin Tarantino (to the right of the car)!
(That's my shot of Angelina, but you can't see her unless I zoom in! The paparazzi flash from the other side blocks her out.)
(A picture of Russ' video camera screen--he got a great one!)
(And the back of Brad's head-a photo from Russ' video screen again!)
(I loved this green door!) (We saw Napolean's home!)(And he was actually there!)(Margaret and Hans)(Thomas, Lotta, Me, and Russ)
(Lotta and I)
As we walked down these narrow cobblestone roads through the town and along the Mediterranean Sea, I was in awe. Words and photos don't do this place justice. We looked at apartment windows with clothes hanging out to dry and wondered who had lived there in the past--imagining the stories that each window held. They seemed so tiny too, Russ and I wanted to see inside one of them.

(The espresso bar was beautiful!)
Antibes took my breath away. My favorite spot so far on this trip--and it had nothing to do with Brangelina either, I promise!!
