Day 12 – Cannes

Posted on July 8, 2017

Oui oui, mon ami, je m’appelle Lafayette.

Another day begins, and a nice slow start this morning. Some fresh baguette, cheese, and eggs for breakfast at the apartment, before walking towards the port to take the ferry to Saint-Marguerite, a small, nearby island.

The island has a trail around the perimeter, which is about 8km long. We picked a direction and started walking, following the trail along the coast, braving the hot sun and enjoying the beaches and views. There were some nice forest trails too, cutting through the island.

After we made it back to the dock, we were in serious need of water, rest (and for me at least, food). We caught the ferry back, and stopped at the same restaurant where we had lunch yesterday, La Pizza Cresci, for a snack and a drink. We shared a pizza and drank copious amounts of water, before heading back to the apartment for a bit.

A short rest (the others did a bit of shopping), and we walked to Grill & Wines for dinner, where we had some nice fancy steaks. No photos of that, was too hungry.
