Cannes, for the super rich, not for the frugal backpacker

This morning I said "au revoir" to Marseille and headed for Cannes. It was more sunny than Marseille which was nice, because for a place that is on the beach and doesn't have much else to see, it would be quite boring in the rain! I headed down to the beach and saw some people sunbathing. I did my best and rolled up my jeans to my knees and took off my jacket. The beach is nice and sandy unlike what I hear the other beaches on Le Cote d'Azur are like. Most of the beaches are owned by the rich hotels across the street but I did find one plage publique.
I then went for a walk along the waterfront, which is bordered by high end boutiques like Versace, Armani, Dior, etc.
I then went to a little bakery and bought the yummiest croissant EVER! It was covered in almonds and filled with chocolate (just like most things seem to be filled with). I also took a picture of a dessert called "une religieuse" (spelled wrong for sure). I ate one the other day and asked the guy at the hostel what it was called. The translation is ä "nun". Kinda creepy but sooooo good!! It's like a cream puff but it's chocolate pudding inside instead of cream.
Since there's not a lot to do but take a few pictures in Cannes unless you're super rich ... I then headed to Antibes.
