One of the first ports of this cruise was Cannes, France. We’ve had some extra work for the past 2 weeks, so my friend and I were excited to get out and relax. She was craving some sunshine, and I was in need of good food. We were both satisfied by the end of the day!
We had to take a tender boat from the ship to shore. On the boat, we spoke with a guest that recognized us from our show the night before. She is a singer at clubs back home, so she had a real appreciation for the arts. It was nice to talk to a fan!
Once on land, we started perusing the menus at restaurants near the beach. We settled on a small restaurant with a covered patio. I ordered mussels, which ended up being large enough to feed a family of 5, and my friend had a pizza. The food was great, as was the house rose we both ordered.
While we were eating, we spoke with a couple that is cruising on our ship. They were very friendly, and upon learning that we were dancers, asked if they can get a photo with us after tonight’s performance. It was very flattering.
After lunch, we went looking for a good wi-fi spot. We found a small cafe that fit the bill, so we ordered some beers, sat outside, and took some time to connect with the outside world. Once we were satisfied, we bought 2 beers to go, then headed to the beach.
The beach was absolutely beautiful. I could have stayed there for hours! The temperature was perfect, the sun was shining, a light breeze was blowing, and waves were crashing in. I took off my shoes to enjoy feeling the sand between my toes. I didn’t want to leave!
It was a simple day out in a fantastic city. Cannes has joined the list of places I must return to!
