france 2013 part 1

Hi everyone, here I am back again after my wonderful French holiday! I have so many photos to share that it will take more than one post to get through them all so I hope you don’t mind.


One of my favourite places on the Riviera is Cannes and as we always go in May we are always there during the Cannes Film Festival.

Cannes Collage

I do love a walk around the harbour at Cannes, I think this is where I’ll keep my yacht, when I get one! 😉 I quite fancy one like the green one, so my colour!!!

Boules Collage

No matter which town or village you visit there always seems to be a boules match taking place and a very serious business it is too. This competition was one we watched in Cannes.


These pretty fountains are in Antibes and when it’s hot, which it was on the day we were there, it is very tempting to run through them!


We always love to visit the markets, Thursday morning is Antibes market and it is always so colourful.


The fruit and vegetable market is amazing, I wish we had markets like it here.


The harbour at Antibes has some fantastic yachts too! If you look in the background of the above photo you can see the snow on top of the Alps this always feels strange when you are taking the photo in almost 30 degrees heat!!

Well I think that’s enough photos for today, I’ll be back in a few days with some more.

Happy Monday, it almost feels like summer here today! 🙂

Hello dear Vivienne,

And welcome back! I, like ali just before me said, wish I was there too, it all looks so fabulous! And it seems that the weather was great too? Oh my, I would love to have a holiday too, but not outside Finland at this moment, really, it’s +28C (!!!!) as I type, it’s been like this for past two weeks… I love it!

Wishing you the most wonderful first week of June!

It was a very chilly weekend here.

I have so been looking forward to this post! If you get a green yacht you will have to put a rabbit motif on the side! The colourful market stall looks amazing. What were they selling? Thank you for sharing your summery photos. I think you bought the sun back with you!!! x

It looks wonderful.

Good morning Vivienne you have brought the sunshine home. Gorgeous photos, I always enjoy seeing them and I think your choice of yacht perfect. Perhaps a green rabbit rather than a sea snake logo though…;0) It was really hot yesterday here and getting better all week right through the weekend too. Woop woop. I hope that washing is all dry now? Jxx

Welcome home Vivienne, I think the sun has followed you back which is great news, summer is here 🙂 Hey I think you are a secret film director or something as you always seem to be in Cannes for the festival, looks so lovely. I do like to see your market pictures, I always get excited about the colourful displays. Look forward to installment 2 xx

Margaret June 4, 2013 - 6:49 pm

Lovely pictures Vivienne. It all looks wonderful. I wonder what you bought at the market 🙂
At least you came home to sunshine and now I’m sure you’re enjoying your garden again.
I have to say I’m missing the bunnies!

Susan June 4, 2013 - 9:29 pm

Sigh!!! All wonderful! We honeymooned in the South of France many years ago, so seeing these photos of Antibes, and the harbour at Cannes bring back happy memories. it’s such an exciting and buzzy place to be wandering around choosing your yacht, and then off up into the hills to the heat shimmering beautiful hill top villages – magic!
Thanks for sharing these Vivienne, and welcome back!

What a super holiday. You’ll have to win the lottery and buy a holiday home there. (And, if you do, can I come and stay???) xxxxxx
