Unfortunately, fireworks, like big waves in the ocean don’t really translate via video. So, you will have to take my word for it. These were incredible tonight.
Here is a short video segment to get the idea…
What’s more fun maybe is to watch the second clip which is what followed the fireworks. Turn up the sound on your computer or mobile device and enjoy the show put on by 50-100 very large motor yachts that have very very loud horns!!
Good fun with Debra Gregory, John Callahan and Susan Callahan (they were listening to JC’s CEO when the fireworks started… Good luck with that speech!)

Emmanuel and Catherine Renoir are two of our great friends. They live in San Diego and are sailors as well. Before leaving on this trip they were good enough to put us up many times during visits to San Diego, and did their best to teach us a little bit about what to expect while in France. (I was supposed to have learned to speak the local language, but fear that I have disappointed!)
Emmanuel's great grandfather is the famous impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, so I was anxious to visit the Musee Renoir in nearby Cagnes-sur-mer.
The museum is actually the house that the painter and his family lived in during the later part of his life.
After a quick train ride, I arrived in Cagnes-sur-mer and it is obvious that this town is still crazy for Renoir. There are streets, building, and businesses using the Renoir name all over the place.
Here are a few pictures from that day…

|The Bay of Villefranche, reputed as one of the five most beautiful bays in the world, is embraced by the Cap of Nice on the right and Cap Ferrat on the left. The charming Old Town of Villefranche cascades down the hillside to the sea, and the sandy kilometer-long beach offers great recreation throughout the year.|
Deb is in San Diego enjoying a McCoy family reunion. While she's gone I plan to spend a few days here....
