Although the weather forecast was for rain, we only had a few drops, so today we took it easy and walked to the main shopping district. Barb is no longer the only woman in Nice without boots! She found a pair of black boots discounted in one of the local boutiques; compared to other boots I have seen, these are not too awful. But then, beauty (fashion) is in the eye of the beholder! We also purchased a real French Chef's knife and a cutting board since the implements in our apartment are somewhat lacking. The search for a coffee grinder continues, we looked thorough all 5 floors of the major shopping center Nicetoile, with several cuisine (kitchen) stores, without any luck. I finally got desperate and purchased a grinder (coarse) designed for spices but still too fine for coffee. Oh, what to do? Our coffee supply is running low except for the whole beans. We also visited the Museum of Natural History and the Palais Lascaris, which is a palatial home not far from our apartment that dates from the
1700's originally belonging to the Lascaris family, which were from the ruling family of Malta. Tomorrow, the beach! Supposed to be 68 degrees!
