Tuesday evening we drove to Monaco. This was a must for me since we were so close. It’s slightly confusing as Monaco is the principality and Monte Carlo is it’s capital city, but Monaco is only about 370 acres and Monte Carlo occupies most of it. It’s quite beautiful, situated on cliffs next to the sea.
We parked at the casino.
Walked around the harbor. There must be a few billion dollars worth of yachts sitting in that marina. Passed the starting line of the Monaco Grand Prix.
Walked to the palace. Large, but not that pretty.
We had dinner of crepes on a little street near the palace. No sightings of Prince Albert though. On the walk back to the casino I called Sharon to wish them a happy anniversary. JT was up from his nap and talked to me a little. Sharon asked if he wanted to sing Winnie-the-Pooh for me. Half way thru the song he stopped and said “Sing Aunt Jemfer!” So I was walking down the street in Monte Carlo singing Winnie-the-Pooh with JT. It was too surreal and funny.
We played slots at the casino. I won 30 Euros.
