Can’t get enough of this

When I woke up at 7.30am yesterday I caught this beautiful sunriseimg_0782
Went for another 6km run and finished off with some exercises on the beach. Tomato face!
The best reward after my workout session was to just sit on the beach and look out over the sea

We went to the beach restaurant Lido Plage for a sunny lunch
Anki was excited to get food

We ended up sharing a chocolate fondant for dessert. Absolutely love them!

Hi my babes! I can’t keep track of the days when I’m here, it’s so nice to just be and not have to worry about life for a couple of days. Yesterday was a lot warmer and I definitely noticed it during my run along the Promenade! I was quite the tomato face at the end of my workout but it felt great to be moving again. My legs were feeling a little bit stiff after running the previous day, my body is really not used to running that much:-P

At the end of my workout I sat down just by the edge of the water to appreciate all the beauty around me. The sound from the waves is so soothing and it’s even more amazing this time of year when the beaches aren’t filled with people. That’s nice too but it felt so special sitting there on an almost empty beach on such a stunning day.

For lunch we rented some Velo Bleus (the French version of Boris bikes for those in the UK) and cycled along the front to Lido Plage. I’d never been before but my family is a huge fan of this beach restaurant. I was absolutely starving at this point and immediately decided on whatever fish they had caught for the day served with grilled veg and rice.

It was absolutely stunning and so fresh. The waiter actually deboned the fish at the table (saved me a lot of work when I was so hungry, which was very much appreciated hehe). It was sunny for most of our lunch but unfortunately a huge wall of clouds came out of nowhere and all of a sudden it got a lot colder. So we ordered some teas and coffees to keep warm because we just had to order chocolate fondants for dessert as soon as we saw it on the menu. Anki and I shared one andSarah ordered an entire one for herself. That’s what I usually do if I’m craving a dessert, share it with someone, then I don’t eat the whole thing 😛

It was sooooo good and served with an incredible vanilla ice cream and cream (I’m really not a fan of cream so I skipped that part).

After our delicious meal we got the bus back (it was a bit too cold to cycle back) and went grocery shopping before spending a chilled evening in the flat. We played loads of rounds of Uno and watched Crazy Stupid Love before going to bed. I love that film and I’m obsessed with Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling together.

Today it’s still a bit grey and cold so I skipped my run and took it easy this morning. Not sure what we’re doing this afternoon. I’m hoping the clouds will go away. I might head into central Nice to look in some shops but we shall see 🙂

Have a great day everyone xx
