There I was in an ambient little café restaurant on the Promenade des Anglais, sipping a chilled verre de vin blanc as you do, when a huge dragon passed by. Scared the living daylights out of me!! Not something you expect to see on the promenade.
Turns out to be some sort of huge Music Festival/Carnival. They shut off the whole of the promenade and had themselves one hell of a street party.
I was still there enjoying the carnival atmosphere when at 9pm a thunderous noise came down the promenade and six heavy trucks arrived, ferrying a variety of different bands. They lined the promenade and filled the air with sweet music. I loved the truck with the DJ and drummer, absolutely fab.
Hundreds of people were dancing on the promenade and the party atmosphere could not be ignored! I finally danced my way back to bed at 2am.
On Sunday morning I needed a lazy day to recover from all the partying. There was a local cycle race along the promenade and I stood on the balcony of my apartment and watched for a while until the sun got really too hot, so went for a dip in the sea to cool down. The beautiful azure blue colour of the sea was really quite deceptive, my oh my it is still quite cold.
