Saint Tropez



Today I will bring you a few images from beautiful Saint Tropez France, when we visited there last year.  September was a good time to go there as most of the holiday makers had gone away and the weather was still lovely

We had perfect weather with lots of sunshine and brilliant blue sky, which made it great for spending time in the gorgeous seaside town.
Was fun to explore, swim in the sea, dine out at the little cafes,  and snap photos. I loved all the wonderful buildings, painted in soft colours, a pastel lovers dream.
These two friendly gentlemen came rushing out of the shop and were happy to pose for me outside the Boulangerie

Walking down charming streets and seeing all the gorgeous old buildings was a chance to photograph around every corner



The little dogs were so adorable- had the look of hoping their parents would hurry up and finish their lunch so they could be out walking again




Do hope you are enjoying your week, dear friends
hugs
Carolyn

  3. I love St. Tropez. It's so very charming, especially when there are less tourists than during the summer months. I adore the lovely architecture, the cute shops, cafés and restaurants. It's one of my favorite places.

  11. Oh I love the photo of those two lovely gentlemen, and I bet the Boulangerie had some great foods in it.

    I do agree with you about the pastel colours of the buildings, especially against that beautiful blue sky.

    Lovely photos as a slice of life in Saint Tropez! C'est la vie.
    It is rainy and cool for the time of the year and it is perfect for tackling my 2nd half of scanning all photo albums.

  24. Yes, looks like you had many chances to snap while you were saying in France.I enjoyed those various photos you have shared. The pink building with a chime and the tower clock is so charming. You were lucky to be able to snap those friendly men.
    Thank you for your concern about the earthquake in Japan. I am fine. That earthquake happened in the southern part of Japan, Kyushu. The serious damages are reported every day. It is sad to see many victims have lost their houses. Only one thing that makes us feel relieve is that there was not Tsunami and power plants in the area were safe. Many thanks, dear Carolyn. Have a good weekend.

  28. Hi Carolyn, It's so nice to meet you. Hope you come back to my blog again. I have a post tomorrow... My brother and sister-in-law (years ago) visited New Zealand and loved it. They did a lot of traveling in their lives --and always said that New Zealand was one of the prettiest places one could visit...

    BUT--I love your France pictures also. There is truly beauty EVERYWHERE in our world.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  36. It was August when we visited St Tropez last and they say Paris empties of Parisians in that month and they take over ST! I can confirm that!!!
    You went at the right time!
    It's a great experience for us, I love sitting in a cafe on the waterfront observing the passing crowd. It's times like this I wish I could draw and paint!
    Oh you've brought back such happy memories for me today dear Carolyn!
    Enjoy your weekend - tonight I'll be dreaming of being in the South of France again!

    Hugs
