Since the Cannes Film Festival has ended and the crowds have dispersed, I decided to go to Cannes for lunch — Le Rendezvous restaurant, situated about 50 meters from the Croisette and 300 meters from the Palais des Festivals.
I was seated at the front window, so had a great vantage point to people watch and view strolling musiciens and tour buses passing by. Lunch was delicious: a three-course menu (appetizer, main dish, and dessert).

As I exited the restaurant, on my way to the Croisette, there were flower shops, flowered balconies, and flower baskets paving the way.

I decided to stroll past the iconic Film Festival building, with its red carpet stairs (would love to have bumped into Brad Pitt who had just been here), continued along rue d’Antibes to window shop, and then along a part of the world-famous Croisette! It was amusing that even the recycle bins had an artistic edge to their design — of course, in blending with the chic surroundings!
