A Walk Through Cannes, France

The sky was black. I heard a huge thunderous boom. And then another. And then the rain came down in  heavy drops, pounding the pavement.

I’m in Cannes, and this morning the dark drama drove me into a cafe where I thought I would wait out the storm for a few minutes and instead encouraged me to sit down in the warmth of the interior for lunch. An hour later and the sky was bright blue.

I took a walk through Cannes…….first to the antiques market in the Marche Forville……

……….and back down ………..this was the first time in all these years I noticed the handprints of the stars in the sidewalk outside of where the Cannes Film Festival is held!

………and now the sun was hot, the beach full, and the superyachts sparkling on the sea……..

One of the best places for free WIFI is at MacDonalds………and while I was there checking my email I realized that the prices seemed high………for the same amount of money you could eat very well at a cafe………..and I also noticed not many people there………..mostly people like me checking their email for the price of a not very good coffee……

………on the other hand, this looked good! Two pounds of mussels, cooked either in cognac or with gorgonzola cheese………hmmmmmmmm!
