I know. I’m in Cannes and it’s the same time as the Cannes Film Festival. I have one camera in my hand, and my iphone camera ready to pull out in case I see a star strolling by or sipping a cocktail. I have one of my best girlfriends with me, and we plan to take the town by storm.
And dine well. Our list is long. So many restaurants to try…and so many celebrating the art of film and acting—as well as the art of dining. We reserved this table for later, so we could have these charming gentlemen as dinner companions….the table also has a super view of the street scene outside.
Last night, we began with an icy cold glass of local rose……
It was superb with bowls of potato chips and Nicoise olives they set on our table….and the weather, which has been spectacular, continued to sparkle into the glass….
Cannes is beautiful this time of year. Lots of people, but not so many that you can’t find a quiet spot on the beach or a beach-side table to dine at. Huge yachts are in the harbor, and a cruise ship peeked in as well.
So our first night, we started with rose. Then we found some paella and a sampling of desserts to take back to our apartment with us. We squeezed lemon all over the paella….savoring sweet shrimp, mussels, and peas….
…..and we tucked into a plate of sweets…which ensured sweet chocolate dreams.
Tonite, its dinner by the window with a view of the street scene. We might dress for this one! Then stroll by the red carpet….
