snow day on the french riviera

so i'm quite behind on the posting, this was one of the days that my dad was here visiting - we had planned on going to Antibes to walk and explore, but then came this -
a walk to the beach in cannes instead.
it's such a freak occurence for it to snow here, that there are high school students who have never seen the stuff.  (they should drive 2 hours to visit it on the mountain, but that's another story.)
so, i present to you, the biggest snowfall cannes has had since the eighties. 
it was a lot of fun to see how the locals experienced it.  umbrellas, snowmen on the beach, even the dogs looked confused and surprised.  there were a lot of snowball fights :)
i wish this had come before christmas, when i really did miss the snow.  now i'm just craving sun and waiting until i can lay on the warm sand again.  lol how can i go back to canada and live through next winter?  i've turned into such a wimp!
