Our last days in France took place in Nice at this terrific hostel. We met heaps of people from the states and Australia and we stayed up late playing cards and cracking jokes. Our first day we walked thru old town up to the top of Le chatel to get a spectacular view of the city. The beach there is a pebble beach and we skipped rocks as we walked along the side of it. WE heard of a gnarly cliff diving place east of Nice and we had to check it out. We tagged along with some people we met from California, Idaho and Washington: the most Americans we have seen this trip. Upon arriving I was shocked by the sight. WE were walking the shoreline and upon turning a corner we came to the cove we were looking for. With Cliffs on the east and west sides and a rolling hill to the south there was only room for a very small secluded beach and an even smaller number of people. We were some of the few there and Wow were we lucky. Ive never seen clearer and more blue water in my life. At depths of 30 feet you could see the bottom as clear as the ground we were walking on. Filled with excitement Robby and I swam out to the cliff on the east side where there was a cave and, in the end, a 8-10 meter Cliff i climbed to jump off. Such a rush. I live for those kind of moments. We took the night train out of there and I did Not get anything stolen from me this time so thats good, and what we came to next is almost to grand to describe... but i Will try anyway..................
