There was a festival on advertising but I gather there is always a festival of some sort on in Cannes. It was more of a nuisance than an attraction to us. It was nice to see a sandy beach for a change and I did go a bit further than a paddle and I spent some time reading in the beach.
J enjoyed the designer shops but I had no interest in shopping even if I had the thousands of euros it would take here.
I think I much preferred to be back in Nice although Cannes was nice to see I wouldn't rush back.
