There will be many more posts about this magical Pub and Hotel but let me start out with their side of the story, and that is the story of the fox and the anchor:
There are times when you tire of the chase and your surroundings. The fox was no different. Charging from wood to glade, never able to take in nature's treasures, the endless fight with chicken wire and fence, the dodging of buckshot and hound. It was clearly time to make a sly change - A warmer climate, maybe the feel of sand underpaw, or to lands where the sunsets burned as rusty red as his coat. He thought of asking the geese, but thought better of it. They had history. Despite being an average swimmer he followed the river downstream to the sea, trickle became torrent and the fox thought he would surely be a gonner. Sodden, wringing wet through and beyond the point-of-no-return, he abruptly felt himself hoisted out of the water by the anchor of a passing cargo ship en-route for the Azores. Given a warm bed and just the sustenance he had been waiting for, the fox had finally found a retreat where he was never hounded and the fowl ran free. You see, if you're determined, you'll always find aweigh.
Goodnight little foxes.

Just got internet access for the first time! Am having so much fun and taking lots of pictures. Wow you really need to speak French well to get around in Cannes....it's been interesting. Spent one night in London which was beautiful like a fairy tale, took the train to Paris and stayed at the Bel Ami Hotel and ate at the famous Cafe on the corner. Went to Laduree and had Macarons for breakfast. Took a train to Cannes and spotted ancient castles hiding in the hills as we went through the countryside. This morning we walked to the festival and then had lunch at the Carlton, a ridiculously opulent hotel on the coast. I wore a polka dot bikini top and a tennis skirt and stared at all the women with dark tans and oversized diamonds. Tonight we are going to lay on the beach and watch Jane Fonda movies next to the ocean.

Just having fun at home with little things around my house. Or Anton's house is more like it. Listening to Ace of Base and watching Harry Potter. Planning trip to France and am so very excited.
I made a blanket fort with crisp white down covers and am eating chocolate from Bottega Louie while looking at overly-expensive hotels in Cannes for fun.
Jeffrey Campbell & American Apparel shoes, American Apparel Nail Polish and Swimsuits & Shorts, Dorian Gray Book by Penguin Re-issue, Makeup by YSL and Chanel, Roses from Trader Joes that died in the 100f heat in one day ahhhha. Ok time to watch more Harry Potter.
