Excursion to Cannes

Image 1Had a wander around Cannes this afternoon. The old town is quite lovely with the buildings in gentle colours and probably unchanged for centuries.

But, step outside the old town, and it’s very difficult to imagine my character here in the 1950s with Cannes harbour now packed with mammoth super yachts owned by rich Russians and an overlay of excessive affluence that is not at all appealing to me.

There are still some lovely old hotels here and on my next visit I plan visit the Carlton Hotel which was the location for the fabulous movie ‘To Catch and Thief’ with Grace Kelly and Cary Grant.
