We enjoyed our breakfast on the balcony where we had a beautiful view of Cannes. Me and Norman both had a bit of work to do, so Linda and JoJo spent some girlfriend time together. In the afternoon we headed out to explore the Cote D'azur. Norman knew a nice walking route along the coast near Antibes so we headed out driving along the beautiful coast line. We had a wonderful hike along the coast and about an hour and a half later we returned. We were all sweaty and very hungry so we stranded in a nice little eatery on the beach. We had a wonderful lunch as a reward for our sporty efforts.

After lunch we continued onwards towards Nice. We stopped at the harbor of Antibes to walk around and gaze at the beautiful yachts. In Nice we strolled around the old town which is beautiful and friendly. Such a difference with Marseilles, where the streets are dirty and the people arrogant. Before we headed out we changed clothes, as we needed to look a bit more presentable for dinner. We managed to change in the parking garage which was kind of funny. Before dinner we stopped for some ice creams at JoJo's favorite ice cream parlor where they serve all kind of funky tastes like rose or violet. For dinner Norman selected a real bargain place. The restaurant L'Universe, close to the main plaza. It is a Michelin starred restaurant, and the set meal is a steal. It is advertised as 3 courses, but in reality they served us 5 courses and every bite was delicious.

We were all stuffed, and needed a little walk before driving back to Cannes. So we strolled along Nice for a bit before heading back to the wonderful hills of California in Cannes. Norman and JoJo invited us to stay a day longer to see the island in their 'back yard'. We really like this part of France, so we happily accepted.
