Today was another good day without having a real rushed schedule. Sam left the Airbnb around 9:30 to meet with Kat and do some yoga. I left not too long after and took Dakotah by the Notre Dame in Nice then over to Old Nice and up to the Panorama sur la Vieille Ville de Nice. Along the way there were tons of soccer fans already drinking in the streets in prep for a big game tonight. They were mostly Germans wearing red soccer jerseys, chanting songs and chugging beers.
The Panorama sur la Vieille Ville de Nice is a big cliff just east of Old Nice where there are a lot of tress, gardens and really nice views of the surrounding area. Fortunately the stairs climbing up to the view points were in the shade since it was already getting hot out.
I took a few photos from the various overlooks and then sat on a bench in the park and fed Dakotah. By now it was almost 11 so I started making my way back down to town. I was thinking about getting a hat from one of the local hat shops but either nothing fit well or it was a lot more expensive than I wanted to pay. Sam said they were done with yoga so I headed back to the Airbnb before going back over to Kat's for lunch.
There's a really good takeaway Indian restaurant below her apartment so she ordered some stuff from there and we ate it at her place. When she had to take her son to daycare we went over to a place called The Center which is a beer bar and barber shop. They have a really nice selection of local-ish beers so we hung out there for about an hour and a half before starting to think about dinner.
We got some chicken and ingredients to make a mustard chicken and then went back to Kat's place to finish the rest of the cheese, wine and bread from the previous night. For the mustard chicken, you essentially coat the chicken with mustard and spices and then cook it in a pan where you already browned some bacon and onions. The dish turned out tasting really good and it's something we'll need to fit into our rotation once we get back home.
Once we finished eating we just hung out for a little while before calling it a night. Tomorrow we're going to head to the beach and get a chance to go swimming. It'll be nice to have another relaxing day!
