Our instagrammers gathered last Saturday to thank our 60,000 fans. They rose to the challenge !

Recipe to carry out our mission perfectly :

STEP #1: Gather a nice bunch of local Instagrammers

They all came together to help us create this original form : luna_husky_siberien,  celinehyeo, jmlpyt, bastien_balmet, flo.mihawk, instawind83, yealen, laureea, yoann_maire, monsport06, cyax06, julian06400, etoilemtg, jorymcfly, clairelpy and bertincamille !

STEP #2: Renting paddles and kayaks at Lake Saint-Cassien

Okwide team welcomed us on the shores of the lake at “Ecobeach” to give us the benefit of their kayaks and paddles to achieve our mission !

Cyril presents the activities proposed on the basis and all the eco-responsible measures in place.


STEP #3: Jump in the water, let’s go!

Direction the other side of the shore, to be photographed by our drone but also by the recently installed webcam of the Lake of Saint-Cassien which offers a panoramic view of the lake.


STEP #4: Take the thank-you photo!

Everyone retrieves his panel and gets into place despite the light current which made us drift easily.
Finally, everyone gets into position and… -CLICK – it’s in the box!

It’s successful, don’t you think ?

STEP #5: Enjoy the rest of the day !

We continued in the morning, going to Saint-Cassien Aventures, near the Biotope of Fondurane. Cynthia briefed us on one of the proposed Nature Rally : the mystery of the 7 houses !

Which team will get to the treasure first ?


STEP #6 : After the effort, comfort !

Adventures makes you hungry ! After a good workout, we head to the Maison du Lac de Saint-Cassien for a well-deserved picnic !
Thanks to La Cuisine de Julien Autin for this feast ! And as a bonus, we have a meal with a view of the lake : what a treat !

STEP #7 : The Esterel Côte d’Azur Olympics

We challenged the instagrammers to make the most out of their pledges! Mime an action, make people guess a song, recite the alphabet backwards… They all took part in the game and brilliantly met all the challenges !


Thank you to everyone who participated in this event !

Now we just have to imagine what shape the next Facebook fan base will take ?

We already have our little idea for the 70,000 subscribers… To be continued 😉 Until then, we’ll see you on our Facebook page!
