Nice: A rocky beach to traverse

One of my favorite photos from a beach day in Nice, lovely Côte d’Azur.

I had trouble walking on the stoney beach, slipping and skidding away, tumbling back down into the water. I was fascinated when this older man came walking, shakily sitting down on the edge of the bank. His hands had visible tremors as he roved his shoes, socks and rolled up his pant legs. It took him a long time. He carefully slid down the bank. Waves coming up over his rolled up pants. Carefully pulling himself back up the bank.

When I am his age I hope I will still want to put my feet into the ocean.
