To St. Tropez And Back Again

We'd not been to St. Tropez before, and, of course, it is famous, so we thought we'd give it a try.
We spent the night at an aire in Brignobles, and across the street
in a park was this variation on the food truck theme

In the seaside community of Rayol-Canadel, they adorn their
dumpsters in wrap/pix of local scenes; best rubbish bins ever,
so far

On the peninsula leading to St. Tropez

The aire was a few kilometers from the town, but on the coast,
and we elected to walk the Sentier Littoral into St. Tropez
Thus; sometimes on a path, sometimes on rocks, sometimes on
the sand beach

Ye olde fortress

Building a new boat bar for next season

The sentier took us by the cimetiere, where they do a lot of
ceramique fleurs; "Your French is excellent" a waiter recently
said to me, stifling hails of derisive laughter

Apparently some sort of thing in St. Tropez; we saw a similar
one at Nordkapp

Entering St. Tropez

The cross-bay ferry; very rough out; glad we walked

At a shirt shoppe in St. Tropez; if only I had a reason to wear a tie

Very clever calendar idea

Street scene

Um, maybe stay off the balcony for now

Street scene; most cemeteries have more traffic than this

At a fashionable shoppe: paisley is coming back, BIG-time

At the harbor, the elegant fish-cleaning station

Also at the harbor, the fashionable place

This berth available...your yacht here...

Like a used yacht lot; "we tote the note" (as they say in Foat Wuth)

So we tired of Le Big Nothingness that is St. Tropez and headed
back to the aire and tomorrow's itinerary

You can mark St. Tropez off your list now. Been there, done that.
