A beach town off season. Never mind that the attendants put out those lounge chairs. These Europeans respect the calendar and its “end of season” rules. I’ve seen it in Italy. I’ve seen it here in France. In Spain, not so much. Anyway, most of the folks here in Cannes this day seemed like tourists, more eager to pose for photos on the steps of the Palais des Festivals than to put their toes in the Mediterranean.
