Along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice there are blue chairs where you can rest, have your picnic, reflect on life, view the sea, be romantic, read a book, write postcards (do people still do that?) or just sit. They are certainly more comfy than those here below that also adorn the famous Promenade.
As usual, there are people who prefer activity to relaxation and contemplation. It is not me you see up there though. I tend to fall into the other category, the Blue Chair people.
