Got to Cannes at 0500 hrs. Sat, after Hotchkiss had completely broken down 12 Km. E. of Toulon. Broke down at 1700 hrs., but we were not rescued till 0200 next day! Slept 3 hrs. in car. Sat. foul, pouring rain for 18 hrs. on end, and in Cannes! So no sailing, & we got wet on inside instead! Today fine, but Dinah had to work, so 3 of us went off to Nice, La Tuchie & Monte Carlo, where we all got into Casino & were taken round the gambling tables! But did not play. Got back 3 1/4 hrs. – puncture only 1310 out. Too tired to send R.H. a p.c. tonight, past midnight, tell her why. Driven 160 miles today. Love, Hubby.
