Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Carlton Cannes Hotel....

Do you ever get the feeling that you've just missed some-one important?
Walking along La Croisette in Cannes I noticed a bit of a flurry
in the portico of the fabulous "Carlton-Cannes"
hotel to the rich and famous

by the time I had crossed the street, " prestigious-guest" was being ushered into the
secluded enclave of the opulent foyer
and I will never know who it was !!
a few journalists were lurking in the wings hopeful of an interview

by the time I was able to enter
all was quiet and orderly
C'est la vie !!

Look at the chandelier, indeed! Sorry you missed your paparazzi chance, but I'm glad you could console yourself with soaking up this beautiful place.

Dianne, what an exquisite hotel and its "rich and famous" arrived with you!

Carlton is a magical place for me. We always stay there when we are in Cannes. It's absolutely beautiful but the rooms need some updating, I have to say but the lobby is gorgeous!

Doesn't that just make you so curious??? Who could it have been? I watched a group of paparazzi outside out our NY hotel for half an hour one day hoping to see whomever it was they were waiting on, only to leave out of fatigue. Felt like I had missed out on a magic moment, somehow. Love that Carlton Hotel--hope to stay there someday.

Thanks for looking me up and leaving a comment, There are quite a few bloggers in SA, some are actually nice and friendly.

Your blog is pure nostalgia for me since air travel is out for health reasons. Our daughter had a ride on that carousel when she was 3 years old, now she is 50 and is just airmailing a group of her dresses for a catwalk show in Paris.

Talking of celebrities, I once met Simone Signoret walking her little dog. She was even more beautiful with wrinkles and no makeup.

Arija- Simone Signoret was a great actress and from all accounts a lovely person - you were very privileged to have met her.

I always think of the lovely Grace Kelly, entering that lobby in the wide straw hat, to meet Cary Grant in To Catch A Thief. Sigh.
