(Mega)yacht-spotting in Antibes with Hazel

Back from a very lazy and very hot and sunny weekend in the south of France, staying at Hazel’s dad’s place.

On both Saturday (photos) and Sunday (photos) we did manage to walk down into and around Antibes old town without really buying anything!

Instead we gazed out into the blue of the Cote d’Azur, paddled on the pebbly town beach and marvelled at megayacht A in the bay – very James Bond. I didn’t know such things existed. It made the other boats in the marina look small.

Cote d’Azur – Antibes

On Sunday we explored the Picasso museum, walked around the marina to the Fort Carré, and totally missed stage 2 of the Tour de France as it passed through the town.

The local supermarchés provided lunches and an al fresco Saturday evening dinner on the terrace, and on Sunday we ate a late lunch at Square Sud on the Place de Gaulle before returning to London via bus 200 to Nice, Aer Lingus Nice to London Gatwick and First Capital Connect train from Gatwick to Farringdon.
