Cassis…

Leave a comment

We were lucky we planned our day trip to Cassis on a Monday. If it had been a weekend or more in the middle of summer it would not have been as bucolic. The town was in perfect form…not too crowded and beautiful weather. Two of these pictures I took with Hipstamatic, but the rest were with the native camera of my iPhone with no extra processing. Yes, the blue is the real blue. After a boat ride to see three Calanques (inlets) we repaired to lunch (from the sea) and a serenade. Cassis started as a fishing port known for its limestone quarries. The base of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor came from here. Now it is a tourist area very popular with the French. I think if we ever go back there we will try to spend many days in Cassis. It was that lovely. We got some good glimpses of Cezanne’s mountain as we drove home past Aix-en-Provence. My movie shows our day. Make it full screen by tapping the arrows in the lower right hand corner.
