July 2nd

Wow, what a full Saturday the girls and I had in Monaco! At about 9:30am this morning, our group plus the Italian, Mexican and Russian group departed by bus to Monaco with our tour guide, Franck. By 11am we were off to our first attraction: we watched as the Royal Palace guards changed shifts. This is a very intricate affair with shouted commands and marching. We then paused to eat our sack lunch on a panoramic look out point of Monaco. Our next stop was to the local church to see exquisite architecture as well as the grave of the famous, Grace Kelly, princess of Monaco. Afterwards, we headed over to the local aquarium where we spent almost two hours admiring all sorts of tropical fish. The girls even pet a shark!! Our day finished with a walk all throughout Monaco, ending in front of, of course, the Monte Carlo Casino. The bus brought us back to the residences about 7pm, where the girls and I ate dinner and have been enjoying a relaxing night in!  IMG_1162 IMG_1161 IMG_1160 IMG_1159 IMG_1156 IMG_1126 IMG_1118
