Just a normal day in Menton... except it wasn't for me!
After a year of nearly total isolation, either because of lock down or because I chose to for health reasons, last Saturday was my first glorious day of freedom! Finally vaccinated - a massive thank you to those brilliant scientists, I drove down the valley to Menton with my camera, somewhat tentative...had I forgotten how the camera worked!
So enjoy the day with me, glorious sunshine with Menton looking her absolute best. All sorts of dogs appeared: a beautiful lady dressed completely in white with her two little white dogs, there was a demonstration for action on climate change along with a demonstrating dog too. I met the only Stumpy-tailed Australian cattle dog in France and whilst walking around the square in front of the Cocteau Museum, there was a tap on the shoulder and it was an old friend, a fellow photographer along with other mutual friends visiting Menton from Marseille. Confess I was jumping up and down with the pleasure of seeing friends, face to face. It was as much as I could do to not hug them.
Demonstration for Action against Climate Change:
Love how this Samoyed is making sure he doesn't miss one word of the conversation:
This is the only Stumpy-Tailed Australian Cattle Dog in France, flown over with his Mama about 8 months ago - he's called Red and lives in Menton. Because he's not crazy about other dogs, he has to wear the muzzle when out walking:
I passed two of my photos on display at different places in Menton. I'd forgotten the outdoor exhibition was still on. A nice surprise - this image is in the shop:
And so goodbye...if you are not yet vaccinated, hope it happens for you soon. Love from Menton x
