June 5: Exploring the French Riviera Toward Saint-Tropez

>> Today, we traveled the French Riviera's shore road toward Saint-Tropez, but never reached it. Instead, what we did see is Mediterranean shore scenery very unlike what we saw from Cannes to Italy and we were enchanted by it.

Two days from now, we had planned on heading toward the Dordogne-area, but based on the interesting scenery we saw today, we decided to stay in the area, this time moving to another Pierre & Vacances in a city named Six-Fours-les-Plages.

The following map shows the lower coastline of the French Riviera, where we will be staying, and what coastal areas we plan on exploring. Many areas in this region are highlighted in the book "DK Back Roads France."

It is possible that we will stay longer in this area, cutting out our time allotted in Brittany and Normandy. What I hope will occur is that we will be able to identify areas where I can stay and draw, while Phil does more walking around. So far, our traveling has been too focused on seeing specific sites, which has given me less time to work on my art (which is still, unfortunately, pretty shaky).

Below is a picture from the coast of Saint-Raphael.

The rock formations below are from the coastal area of Foret Domaniale de l'Esterel (my apologies for not using French characters when citing names as they tend to show up as errors on browsers in the US).

What we noticed when driving in this new direction is that there are more roadside restaurants, more parking, and absolutely more places to pull off the road to enjoy the scenery. We'll soon find out whether some of the most exclusive landscape on the face of the earth is common-man (and limping woman) friendly.
