While we didn't go away this summer, we did try to get out and about a bit more than usual. You know when you have visitors to stay and they say "is that place worth a visit or how about this one?" and you have to admit that you don't know because you haven't actually been?! Surely I'm not the only one who loves visiting all the sites when I'm on holiday but just never seems to get around to visiting local attractions when I'm at home?
Well it was finally time to take a "staycation", pretend that we were tourists and visit a popular spot on the Mediterranean coast for the day. We started by taking a trip on the ferris wheel. The view from the top was amazing, even though it was over all too soon.
Then our little girl spotted a carousel nearby and there was no chance she would let us walk past it without taking a spin. She eschewed the horses and giraffes for a particularly vibrant fire truck.
Then, a short drive along the coast took us to another town with houses seemingly clinging to the side of a cliff and a fantastic viewing point at the top of the "Corniche".
All in all, a lovely, relaxing day, documented with a few casual photos (rather than any attempts at an orchestrated photo shoot), as we remembered how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful region!
