Cannes for the day

We went to Cannes for a day as it was only a about a 40 min drive from where we were staying.
While part of the group went diving, I spent the day at the beach with my Mum and her friend.
We were lucky as where we set up camp was not such a crowded beach and without deck chairs (otherwise we would have been packed in like sardines with everyone else).

IMG_6259We had lunch at a seaside restaurant where we had a delicious salad nicoise and glass of rosΓ©.

We took some time to wander around Cannes.
I don’t know what I was expecting but I wasn’t that impressed.
Maybe it’s because I couldn’t go shopping in all the designer stores that lined the streets?
Or maybe because I didn’t spend the day at a beach club?
I’m sure if I had spent more time there it would have grown on me.

IMG_6283We had dinner at 3.14Β down at the beach and watched as the sun set.

IMG_6280We spent the day hunting for nice yachts but as we couldn’t find the perfect one we decided hold out.

I wish.

IMG_6269I loved the restaurants turquoisey/blue and white colour scheme and the food was good too.
At least my salmon and vegetables were amazing.

After dinner we walked along La Croisette and stumbled upon these dancers.
IMG_6290I was amazed at how much strength some people have.
And their moves were really cool too.
Now if only I could dance…
