Vence to Grasse - Vacation report 12
Sunday August 2, it was time to visit Hakon and Angelica.
This day we were able to drive without trafic jams. Only some very rough rainshowers and thunder storms slowed us down for some minutes.

We were heading eastwards in the direction of Nice. But at Cagnes-sur-Mer we turned to the North and startet climbing up to Vence. (You can navigate on the Map and hence follow our route - use the left arrow on top left side of the Map to find Vence).
We were invited for lunch at Angelica's place. What a view.
Before lunch, we simply had to take a swim in the Pool. Wonderful.
Here you see Hakon and Anna at the Table.
Angelica prepared a wonderful lunch, German style.
Here she is about to serve a delikatessen.
Apple Pie for Dessert.
Wow - what a taste. Only premium apples for this recipe. A speciality you are only served by Angelica.
We had a wonderful time. And it is curious to think about:
Anna had not seen Angelica since 1991. But we have been known since about 1975. In Oslo.
Hakon we have seen more often, as he used to visit us in our summerhome for many consecutive years. In his age (80), he has realised it's a rather hasardious project for him to drive all the way from Vence to Norway. Here is one of the posts I did make in 2007.
Anna is a Book lover. Here in Hakon's Garden.
Here we say goodbye - for now.
My last visit to Hakon is blogged here.
Monday Aug 2, en route again. We went from Vence via Tourette sur Loup (Use the left arrow on the Map to follow our route) in the direction to Grasse)
We stopped and Anna ran out of the Car. Wooow.
What a view - Provence towards Nice - Behind the Hills in the background, on the right.
It's steep. Lot's of Spring River Gorges. We are in Alpes Maritime. Beach Life and Mountain Hiking within 30 minutes by Car. Here le Bousquet down right. When passing the Village heading West, you have to turn left and pass the Bridge over the Gorge.
The route we choosed is very curvy. But also very scenic. (Go back to the Map above)
Be very observant when driving here. The Locals knows the route and drive fast and don't be surprised it you have one just sniffing the rear of your Car.
Talking about sniffing. Here we are in Grasse - The Perfume Capital of the World.
