I’m having a tough time getting back into the swing of things after traveling most of October; some for pleasure but some to take care of urgent family matters of a not so pleasant nature. Here, I’ll focus on the pleasure part and share with you some scenes from our stay in Cannes on the French Riviera where, for three days, the legendary and historic Intercontinental Carlton Cannes was our refuge and we slumbered along with Hollywood Stars past and present. It’s here that Alfred Hitchcock filmed many scenes of the cult classic “To Catch a Thief” starring Grace Kelly and Cary Grant. To honor Grace Kelly’s beauty and talent, her son Prince Albert II of Monaco officially baptized The Grace Kelly suite.
Overlooking the serene bay of Cannes.
Stroll along La Croisette.
Walk through Old Cannes and climb up to Place de la Castre.
Views of the Old Harbour.
This particular resident of the Old Harbour caught my eye later that evening.
For lunch, a Caesar salad at Foquet’s.
End a perfect afternoon with Jean-Luc Pele’ famous macaroons.
