The road from Gorbio

Last Wednesday I had a field support call in Monaco after which I went up to Gorbio once more to visit “Auntie” Jilly and drop off some cables for her new iMac. The day was again overcast and with the occasional drizzle. I was in a good and relaxed mood as a result. I’m kind of warped that way, finding pleasure in the turbulent weather that others find depressing.

I really enjoy the drive along the D50, which runs along the hills from Gorbio to the Grand Corniche just above Roquebrune village. It is woody, a little remote, peaceful, and offers wonderful views. The route is about 8 kilometres long and is very popular for walkers, runners, and cyclists. At this time of year, it’s about the only place I get a true sense of autumn, as the south of France tends to be constantly green due to the warmer climate of the region.
