The museum had ancient artifacts from all around the world. I particularly liked that it was located inside a castle. They had a really awesome collection of ancient musical instruments and a couple forefathers to the violin and viola, as well as mummies, heiroglyphics, and lots and lots of other stuff.
We were able to climb the tower to get an awesome view of the city and the harbor. This awesome view just reminded Portia that she hadn't been swimming yet and wasn't that what we were supposed to do while we were in Cannes?

We were searching for a place where we could all have crepes for lunch since this was our last day in Cannes (that went fast!). We found a little place finally that was pretty decent. I had an artichoke chicken crepe that was okay. I wished I had ordered the crepe mom got that had a cream sauce on it. We had a chocolate crepe for dessert though.

We spent the rest of the afternoon going in and out of little shops. We bought some macaroons and isn't this little shop just lovely with all its beautiful colors of macaroons? I picked a green mojito macaroon. Mmmm. So good.
The Cannes Film Festival had been only a couple of weeks before, so a lot of the posters were still hanging up all over the city. Bianca got in the spirit of Cannes.
Eric and I then went on our much-anticipated date. Eric ordered the seven-course meal, while mine was only three courses. Still, once you sit down at a table, you're there for the night. Our meal took well over four hours. My back even started hurting near the end. Still, it was a nice night of food and it's a good thing we had enough to talk about over such a long dinner!
