So many of my good intentions for the blog slip during summer.  Mid June to mid July is by far the busiest time of year for me workwise on top of which I find it hard to write with the kids around and so many fun things to do.  Then we take off for our own holidays (a road trip moving from location to location) and even in this age of 24 hour connectedness technology isn’t infallible; I’ve been without wifi for more days than with over the last month meaning I have barely blogged!  So I have completely failed to keep up my Museum Monday series.  In a bid to rectify the situation I asked 5 local Côte d’Azur/Provence bloggers to share with me their favourite museums.  And here they are:

The French Riviera, or Côte d’Azur as it’s called in French, is famous (and possibly infamous) for its beaches.  There are an enormous variety in the approximately 125 kilometres of coastline between Menton and St Tropez, from pebbles to fine white sand, from long open stretches to small rocky coves, from urban built-up beaches to wild secluded ones, and just about everything in between.

This week I popped into the Picasso Museum in Antibes with my parents who were visiting from England.  They’ve been to stay many times and have seen much that the Riviera has to offer but had never been to the Picasso Museum, nor had I for that matter.  As enthusiastic history of art students (they have been studying for a few years and have travelled to many cities purely for the art) they jumped at my suggestion to go there and I think I probably enjoyed it more because of their knowledge than had I gone alone (more on this later).
