I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. Nelson Mandela

Beaulieu Sur Mer
The sun is shining brightly! The aqua blue water of the Mediterranean is sparkling. The day started with a trip to Cap Ferret however that is to wait for another day. I took the train to Beaulieu, a short. 15 minute ride from Nice. Decided to explore a bit before the walk to Cap Ferret. Two choices, go to Centre VIlle or choose the other trail and what a delight. Breathtaking views over the Mediterranean, private elegant Villas and cliffs. All the Villas have a view of the Mediterranean. There were a few bikers and a few cars but otherwise I was alone to enjoy! I walked the entire Moyenne Corniche. The walk was about 3 hours including the return to the VIlle for a delicious Caprese salad with Jambon. I continued to a paved pedestrian path along the water with tropical gardens.
I ended at Villa Keryles which according to the guidebooks is the main attraction before reaching Villa and Jardind Eohrusdi de Rothschild and Cap Ferret but will save for another day.
