After a week and a half in Cannes we had to move to a new berth. I was sad because it was great working close to Mark, but I was very excited to see a new place. At this stage my deck-hand skills had improved a bit!  I was always on fender duty, making sure the boats don't touch as we park or leave a berth. It sounds simple, but sometimes a little fender can save a boat from great damage.

Villeneuve-Loubet was our new home. It lies between Cagnes-sur-Mern and Antibes. Avery small and old French village.

The port is surrounded by apartments in the shape of Pyramids.

After I served dinner to the crew I went for a run to explore the village. I made the mistake of going along the beach, because it was a pebble beach. Coming from South Africa we are so spoilt with out long coasts of soft sea sand, not rocks!

The French like their rollerblades
