Snack Popeye, Plage Gigaro, La Croix Valmer

Bikes on the harbour wall at sunset in St Tropez

Ride in the sunshine along the French Riviera: Hyères, Borme les Mimoses and meeting with Denis and Michel for a salad lunch on the front at Le Lavandou.
Continuing the road movie with a photo stop at Snack Popeye on Plage Gigaro at the village of La Croix Valmer. These little beaches are pretty much deserted at this time of the year and the storms haven't yet wreacked damage. Some more roads, hills, cliffs and plenty of curves then a stop for coffee and tea portside at Les Marines de Cogolin, just across the channel from Port Grimaud.

St Tropez lifeboat crew

Sunset over the Bay of St Tropez

That break timed our arrival at St. Tropez for sunset. Our photography attracted attention from the crew of the one of the lifeboats. And then the unmissable sunset over the Bay of St. Tropez, the sun dipping behind the cork tree forest of the Maures. Back to Denis’ apartement for dinner for three, afterwards a car trip to the nightlife in Saint Aygulf.

Thanks again Denis and Michel.
