Around lunch time, we'd used to step out onto the Croisette, and cross over to promenade on the sidewalk..
.. where wooden staircases lead to explore the restaurants located below (lining the beach between the Martinez hotel and the Palais du Festival)
Their shaded terraces provide a tranquil haven from the busy and bustling Croisette, and after lunch, comfortable loungers invite to relax and enjoy the beautiful view over the mediterranean sea
The tempting fresh fish and seefood display of the L'Annex..
where we had a fun and delicious lunch
Last Thursday was a special day, celebrating not only my b-day,
but also the debut of the 'waterfall' necklace, newest addtion of the MT Collection. I was so pleased to have got the final version ready just in time for this trip
