La piscine.

There are people in St. Tropez who would never go swimming here (la Ponche - the least touristy, but most charming area of town) - too close to town, maybe a little gritty, seaweed deep down, etc. The people who do are pretty great: 13-year old boys who do backflips off the side of the concrete edge, me (cannonballs and dives), kids (cannonballs too), old ladies who breaststroke in the water and watch the tricks with a big grin on their face. To be fair, this is the closest swimming hole to the heart of St. Tropez and it is never crowded. The water is deep enough to dive into. I swim far out in this pool and then climb the ladder again to jump off again. I keep telling myself it will be the last time, but I just keep jumping back in.

This is one of my favorite photos you have ever taken.

I agree, it's a great photo!

I also love your description of the place and your confession that you just had to keep jumping back in!
