May: between Spring and Summer

May on the French Riviera means: longer days, warmer weather (sometimes! sometimes it may also mean days of cold rain),  Cannes Film Festival and the  Monaco Grand Prix.

The last few days have been glorious. Already the days have started to get longer and longer, with the sun setting at around 8.50pm  (only 1 month away from the longest day!), and after last week’s rainy weather (and the turmoil of the presidential election), the last few days have been a lot warmer, with temperatures in the mid-twenties Celsius (mid-70s Fahrenheit).
I had dinner outside last night, in the old centre of Nice, just meters away from the beach:

promenade des anglais
Nice Promenade des Anglais at sunset
Nice Promenade des Anglais by night

Summer, holidays and vacation time are almost upon us (in the northern hemisphere at least)!
As mentioned earlier, I may venture into Cannes in the next few days, see if I can capture some of the action!
