Oh well, I think we're finally off for some good time on Côte d'Azur. At the sight of all these colorful sun umbrellas, anyone would wish to lay down in the shade and enjoy life as it is.
And the high season isn't really there yet! Still, this setup in Juan les Pins is typical to the region. The boats, the cars and the crowded terraces are obvious signs that Cannes Festival is really happening.
From a local resident's perspective I see happy faces, shinny cars, busy business owners, boats moving, swimmers, kids playing on the beach, blue sky and more. Very positive. And the summer is not even there yet!
For those coming from other regions for vacation, I wish you a wonderful time, great weather and fun. My best advice, take it easy, slow down and relax, you're going to really grab the essence of Côte d'Azur.
