Our Lost And Found Day In St. Tropez

We wrote here at the time about getting ourselves lost while walking around St. Tropez during our cruise.

It's mainly our own fault that our memories of that famous resort are somewhat negative. Tendering ashore we caught only our second glimpse of a yacht equipped with a helicopter, the first being Microsoft big shot Paul Allen's yacht docked in Nassau some years ago.

Maybe this is one Leonardo DiCaprio (isn't he an actor?) just visited.


We did manage to get a lot of exercise as we walked and walked and walked...

There's some WW II history here that at least a few remember...





By the time we found our way back to a sentier and walked awhile longer, it was a relief to find a spot to stop for lunch and share a pizza while looking in vain for an Internet signal and a map.


Onward to the sentier...

As we looked back at the restaurant, we realized we had a long way to go...




More history along the way...


We realize we still have a long way to go to get back to St. Tropez. We're told there's a bus but there's no schedule and we give up after an hour or so.


Fortunately we find another bus stop a couple of blocks up the road after turning down a 40 Euro limo ride back. Unfortunately, when the friendly and free bus arrives, we still manage to get off a couple of stops early and face another hour's walk back to the port.

We did eventually make it back aboard and spoiled ourselves with a fine dinner in our suite, but that's another post...
