Shadow Shot Sunday 152 - St Tropez

This week's shadow shot was taken in St Tropez on the French Riviera - an ex fishing village made famous by Brigitte Bardot when she came to film here. Now it is a seriously chic and trendy destination with seriously chic and trendy prices. You are looking at a 7 Euro cup of tea!!

The Senequier cafe is right on the port, and is reputedly where Sartre used to sit and write. It is a great people-watching place and you certainly need to sit here for hours to get value for money!! If you want to see the view from this cafe check out the next post on St Tropez....
