The Grand Prix

It is about time for the Grand Prix in Monte Carlo, Monacco, In fact I think it is today.  This time of year always takes me back to a very happy place.  Twelve years ago all was right in my world.  My husband was working at a good job, my daughter had just turned 16, and I was in Europe with one of my best friends.  We visited Monte Carlo the day after the Grand Prix.
If you look at the photo you can see the bleachers set up for the people to view the race.
Then we went to the palace and watched the guards.
We went and did a little shopping, actually did no shopping because I couldn't afford anything in Monte Carlo.  But we did stop in and visited the Casino and the Grand Hotel.  No I did not see James Bond!
We visited Grace Kelly's gravesite and then we had the best pizza EVER!

These are memories you never forget!


  1. Your story is cute and lovely!

  2. I'd like to visit Monte Carlo one day. It does look really lovely in your pictures. And now you've mentioned the pizza...!

  3. How wonderful and what super memories!
    The photos certainly reminded me of the James Bond movies!

  4. I would love to go there some day...It's on my bucket/barrel list.

  5. I love Monte Carlo, great captures!

  6. You raise a lot of questions in my head; you wrote an excellent post, but this post is also mind provoking, and I will have to think about it a bit more; I will return soon.
