These pictures are fairly old – 4 years to be exact. I took them with my analogue camera, as I was living in Berlin, where developing film was still affordable. We have been back to the Côte d’ Azur since our first trip back then, but I do remember those two weeks in August in particular and it’s those pictures that make my very excited to be going back there in less than two weeks.
We will be spending 5 days at Les Roches Rouges near Saint Raphaël – a beautiful hotel by the sea, with a rock pool I cannot wait to jump into. It is located right by the Cap de L’Esterel, that stunning formation of red rock plunging down into the Mediterranean that you can see in the pictures below.
I will bring a bunch of books – F.Scott Fitzgerald’s “I’d Die For You” is already on top of the pile – sunscreen, a bathing suit and a hat. I guess that’s all I will need to lie by the pool and squint into the sun, with the boyfriend and two glasses of ice cold rosé next to me.
