Day 428 – Friday 10th May 2019
A gloriously sunny day. We set off for a spin around the coast on Zippy
Ended up in Cannes….
Heard lots of American accents around town but truth be told the only film I’ve seen that was made in the last 20 years was The Hangover so I wouldn’t recognise a modern day ‘film star’ if I tripped over one.
Day 429 – Saturday 11th May 2019
An overcast and cold start to the day.
The day became a scorcher and we were grateful when the wind got up to cool things down.
Day 430 – Sunday 12th May 2019
A beautiful start to the day.
Went to Haut Cagnes for a Thai festival.
Day 431 – Monday 13th May 2019
A beautiful day; had the card school round for lunch. A very lazy day.
Day 432 – Tuesday 14th May 2019
We hopped on Zippy and went for a spin to Golfe-Juan.
Day 433 – Wednesday 15th May 2019
There was a storm during the night but it’d all died down by breakfast and by 10am it was a fabulously sunny day.
As we are off to Monaco tomorrow we had another lazy day sitting in the sun reading and listening to podcasts. My tan is coming along nicely
Day 434 – Thursday 16th May 2019
Off to Monaco for a nose about.
The train was delayed and we didn’t arrive until lunch time. So my mind was totally focused on getting some food while Julie was more interested in taking photos.
Eventually I managed to buy a pizza to eat on the marina.
With just a week to go till the Grand Prix and workmen all over the place it was pretty chaotic.
I’ve been to Monaco many times but I’ve never actually been in the casino so I brought my passport and wallet with me today.
You can go in the foyer and gift shop for free and just by the cloakroom are the best free public toilets on the Riviera but it’s €17 to get into the casino itself. You get a voucher to exchange for 2 €5 non-cashable chips so it’s quite good value for money.
I used to be on Betfair all the time putting money on football matches and the tennis but I never considered it gambling. Gambling is for fools I was investing plus I absolutely hate losing.
With that in mind the only chips I was going to use were the non-cashable ones I’d been gifted. I went to play on a roulette table and betting on Manque (1-18) & Passe (18-36) I only won our entry money back 😀
But it turns out 32 isn’t Julie’s lucky number after all.
Later we had a walk about the shops and the track…
All in all a great day out and we’ll be back next friday for Free Friday 😀
