I know St.Tropez from Louis de Funes - movies. I wanted to see this town.
|Louis de Funes played the Gerndarm from St.Tropez. He is a legend as his films are too. (painting sold in the street)|
There is no train to St.Tropez. I have to go from Cannes to St.Raphael. Leaving Cannes with local train at 10:55 (10:35 scheduled), train 20 min late. 7 Euro is not much. Arriving in St.raphael at 11:25 (11:14 scheduled).Time for going around in St.Raphael. Walking along the shore, picturing and visiting Notre Dame church. St.Raphael seems to be a small industry town with tourism impact. Not really beautiful. Leaving St.Raphael at 13:00 with bus. 2 Euro one way.
Arriving in St.Tropez at 14:30. What a nice, small town. No hotel castles, small streets with small houses. Very beautiful, even in January. Going to lighthouse and picturing panorama photos, what is very easy with my camera.
|Streets of St.Tropez are so full of flair|

|Nice small streets, old houses|
Then walking to the city. what a great scenery for movies. When approaching to Notre Dame church I hear organ music and a coffin is carried out. No need for burial, so moving. All the small streets with Mediterrenean houses: quadratic plan, ocher facade, flat roof. Elegant shops besides artworks handicraft. So many great views to picture. Later returning to Notre Dame church, church closed.

Short rest in a park where people play Boule.

16:30 leaving St.tropez with bus. In st.Raphael hurrying to buy tickets. 18:10 leaving St.Raphael with TGV (9.60 euro) and arriving in Cannes at 18:35.
Noticing sunset at 6pm and making plans for next day shooting the sunset at Cote Azur.
