Day 1: Sights of Antibes

The streets of the old Antibes are rudimentary and narrow -but quaint. After more than a year away from my home country, all the charms and characteristics of my surroundings seem to just pop out like a black dot on a white wall: the old entry doorways, the shop signs and displays. I couldn't stop smiling -and taking pictures.

We randomly happened upon La Villa Fontaine, a very old home nestled in the Saffranier neighborhood, where painter -and French Fork reader Ann Elizabeth Schlegel has been invited to stay by the city of Antibes to paint. Here's a snapshot of the little walk:
