Summer in the South of France is all about the sun, sea and beach. What bliss to feel the fresh sea air on my face. We went for a long walk along the beach at La Croix -Valmer. We thought that it would be less crowded than Pampelonne. It was still fairly busy.
I am no longer a “beach bunny” and do not like to lie in the sun all day as I used to (very bad for the skin); however I do still like to swim. I was wearing a pink swimsuit under my short kaftan ready to dive into the sea for a quick dip to keep cool.
It has been so hot here in the South of France that I ran out of cool summer dresses to wear. Trousers; even my wide linen ones were just too hot. I could not resist this cotton green print floaty maxi dress. I found it in a small boutique in the village. Long wafty maxi dresses seem to be the uniform for most women here at the moment.
A short post today as it is just too hot and I am feeling too lazy to do much work. I need to make the most of our summer break in the South of France before we return to London at the end of next week.
