Cannes, St Paul de Vence then Nice and Au Revoir, Richard and Rene
The last two days have been fervid, from a great dinner Wednesday night in Suquet, the old quarter of Cannes. We dined at Le Marais, which was worth the walk up the hill past all the other restaurants and cafes.
Yesterday, we decided to visit the hills and drove to Vence, had a coffee, then strolled through the Old Town and drove down the hill to St Paul de Vence for a lovely lunch of fish soup and salad.
The views and strolls through this old town are remarkable and next time I hope we stay for a night and see St Paul de Vence under the stars.
We drove to Nice and motored down the Promenade des Anglais to the Cours Saleya. We walked around the markets. A few flower stalls were still full of peonies, lavender and lillies, while the restaurants and cafes were busily setting up for dinner.
Beach at Nice
Time to leave for the airport, we dropped Rene and Richard off for their UK flight and drove back to Cannes. The traffic in Cannes was so heavy, they might have arrived first.
PS We asked them not to go, but they were steadfast and the text from Cowes today was ” Blowing a Gale in Cowes”. Mercier had amazing a lovely motor sail under blue skies to beautiful Menton, Views of Cap Ferrat and Monaco were stunning and the water temperature is 24°C.
