Concrete blocks protecting the road from the sea just outside Cannes. Some years ago, I was lying on one of these blocks sunbathing, when a young women (and a complete stranger) climbed down from the road to join me, laid down a towel next to mine, stripped down to nothing more than a bikini bottom, and, without saying a word, lay down beside me.
