    St Raphael has two harbours - the modern port of Santa Lucia and the ancient fishing port.
    We took in both on a pleasant afternoon stroll. We found the ancient port far more interesting as it's stll a working fishing harbour.

    St raphael and its neighbour, Frejus share a wonderful stretch of golden sand beach.
    We had been driving all round Europe, and a day on the beach is just what the doctor ordered.

    After checking in at Hotel Excelsior, it was already well past 1PM. I was hungry and knowing that a lot of restaurants stop serving lunch after 2PM, I had to hurry. Walking around the old port, there are McDonald's and a lot of fast food restaurants. Because of the Christmas/New Year holidays, quite a few of them remained closed. Finally I found this pizzeria. Their daily special caught my eye -- spaghetti with mussels. The restaurant is not very big, there are no more than 10 tables. Most people were having pizzas (no merci). I did not have a hearty breakfast that morning so I was ready for a big lunch :0)). I had the fish soup to start. It was very rich and tasty. The plate of spaghetti must have at least 25 mussels on it. I am not a big fan of mussels (never like to dirty my hands), but for once I enjoyed the mussels very much -- fresh, plump and cooked just right. Overall it was a very good lunch. I highly recommend this restaurant. Rating: 9 out of 10.

    My last day in St. Raphael, since I went east to Port Santa Lucia the day before, I thought I would go west this time. It was a good 20 minute walk along the beach to the town of Frejus. I started scouting for a restaurant for lunch. Right across from the tourism office, this restaurant seems to fit my criteria (from the menu posted outside, and my own "table cloth" indicator). I had a seafood carpaccio to start and fettuccine with scallops to follow. They were both excellent. I gave it a 9.
