A bit of a laid back day today. Took an early train to Cannes to have a look around, only spent the morning there though. Took a few photos then returned to camp for a restful afternoon. We have enjoyed staying here, the facilities at the camp are excellent, very clean, a little noisy but it is a very big camp so you would expect that. It has a great restaurant, mini market and best of all believe it or ...
... after a few minutes waiting for other cars to clear, we were able to get on the road. As we passed through the toll both and about to get on the highway, there were two police officers waving people over to the side of the road. They approached the window and gave me a hand held breathalyzer to blow into. No discussion, no other questions. Just "blow". Luckily I passed and we were waved on.

It does have a reputation for being a bit of a sleep retirement community and the beaches are very, very rocky so maybe don't go there if you are hoping for discotheques and/or soft sandy beaches.
Tomorrow, more driving. Wish me luck!
