St. Tropez & Le Cap Taillat

Trip to St. Tropez and Le Cap Taillat

September 20, 2014

Last week we took a trip to St. Tropez and Le Cap Taillat for just 25 euros with our awesome bus driver George! Unfortunately, I missed all the beautiful scenery during the drives because I was so tired (possibly from the night before?). 

We started the day surrounded by yachts and designer brands in St. Tropez. But really, I’ve never seen so many yachts! It was really fun to observed the people entering and leaving them, since in my opinion, they didn’t look like they would be super rich. While in St. Tropez, we were told to try a treat specific to the city, la tarte tropézienne. I didn’t get to take a picture of my baby ones before my phone died, but they looked like a puffy bread sandwich with large salt on top and cream in between the top and bottom. An elegant description, I know, so here’s a photo. I also broke down and purchased some gelato while there, which is quickly becoming a bad habit anywhere we visit! Before departing, we also visited the museum in the city which was full of art done in the stippling/dot method pointillism. One of the most featured artists in the museum was Paul Signac

Après St. Tropez, we took another bus ride to Le Cap Taillat. It felt like we hiked around a mountain before reaching the beach and to be honest, I’m not sure if it was worth it. A fun story though… while looking for any shade possible, I almost walked into the entirely nude part of the beach, not that any of the French really followed the division. I saw so many old person private parts that day… so many. I also got a lot of comments on my bathing suit on Instagram and Facebook. Funnily enough, I got it at a sports store here in Aix called Twin Peaks. You can’t make this stuff up. 

Then on the way home, I slept through the scenic route… Oops.
