Day 10: Cannes (5)

image

As the day wore on, it was time to return to the ship. We walked back to the cruise terminal, passing a hat vendor who was still manning the barricades in the hot sun.

Norwegian Jade's crew had set up a tender station on the pier, with cold drinks and chairs for overheated passengers.

It wasn't long until we were back on Norwegian Jade, where we took this photo of tenders shuttling back and forth, the Cannes breakwater, and the town itself.

The last tender arrived from Cannes shortly after 5 p.m. as the three other boats were being hoisted onto their davits.

While we waited to depart, a light airplane flew past with an advertising banner. (The ad was obviously targeted to people in Cannes, not to ships and yachts offshore.)

Parasailers outside the harbor took off from a small boat, which then towed them as the parachute rose high into the air.

The flotilla of yachts outside the harbor looked less military now that the morning haze had long worn off.

Other yachts and sightseeing boats cruised past Norwegian Jade as we steamed away from Cannes.

A short while later, we passed the Lérin Islands (including Île Saint-Hororat, shown here, which has been home to monasteries since the Fifth Century AD).

The LĂ©rin Islands are a 15-minute ride from Cannes by ferry. Tourists come to visit the Sea Museum (housed in a former Royal Fort and Prison), a monastery shop at the Abbaye de Lérins, and the islands' nature preserves.


image

Not long after reaching the open sea, we saw a pod of dolphins splashing as they swam alongside Norwegian Jade. The dolphins took turns leaping into the air, flipping onto their backs, and falling back into the water.

Later in the evening, costumed children from Norwegian Jade's Splash Academy greeted adult passengers in the Stardust Theatre before another phenomenal magic show by David and Abi Haines.

Day 10 of our cruise ended with a nighttime walk on open decks under a New Moon.
